About the Information Architecture Institute

The information Architecture Institute is a nonprofit (501c6) organization of volunteers. Our singular focus is to make the world's information clearer and easier to use by improving how people learn, practice and teach information architecture (IA).

We are always evolving

We set a high bar for our organization to completely replatform by the end of 2016. 

Our History

In 2002, our founders established an organization dedicated to the advancement of the field of information architecture.

Our Board

The IA Institute is managed entirely by a team of hard-working volunteers. Our board of directors is at the heart of the organization.

Our Work

Our programs and initiatives, all launched by members of our community, serve the needs of those learning, teaching, and practicing IA.

"The IA Institute has already helped to shape the field and its practitioners. But what really excites me is what the IA Institute can become. What amazing things might you do together with thousands of others who also want to make sense of information?"
