    Advertising Inquiries
    As a not-for-profit college, the CIA has a limited advertising budget, and generally does not do a significant amount of paid advertising. We also do not participate in pay-for-placement opportunities on broadcast television. If you are a sales representative, and would like to approach the CIA about advertising, please do not call us directly. Instead, please send a media kit to: The Culinary Institute of America, Marketing Department, 1946 Campus Drive, Hyde Park, NY 12538.
