*Please note that the Kansas City Art Institute Office of Academic Advising and Career Services frequently receives unsolicited employment and volunteer opportunities and posts those that might be of interest to students and alumni in the Opportunities List. The AACS in no way can or does investigate the character or reliability of the listing employers. We thus strongly encourage applicants to screen potential employers and the opportunities listed carefully with the understanding that it is the applicant and not Kansas City Art Institute that is responsible for disputes of any kind with the listing employers. Questions should be addressed to the AACS.
Posting in the Opportunities List
If you have a job, volunteer or RFQ opportunity you would like posted in the KCAI Opportunities List, complete the opps list submission form here. Only art-related jobs will be posted and all announcements will be subject to approval by AACS staff.
