The Foundation for Interior Design Education Research (FIDER) was established in 1970. The founding organizations were the Interior Design Educators Council (IDEC), the American Institute of Interior Designers (AID), and the National Society of Interior Designers (NSID). AID and NSID merged in 1975 to form the American Society of Interior Designers (ASID). The intent of the founders was to promote excellence by developing standards for interior design education and to acknowledge the increasing demands of an emerging profession.


ASID relinquished two seats on the FIDER Board of Trustees to include the Institute of Business Designers (IBD 1984) and the Interior Designers of Canada (IDC 1985). In 1994, IBD, the International Society of Interior Designers (ISID), and the Council of Federal Interior Designers (CFID) merged to form the International Interior Design Association (IIDA).


Interior design professional societies' leaders joined FIDER Trustees in 1997 planning sessions to address the need for financial support of accreditation and reflecting a shared commitment to design education. FIDER's governance structure was identified as a strategic issue. With the support of the founding organizations, FIDER was restructured in 1999 into a Michigan nonprofit corporation, designed to maintain productive connections with all 'communities of interest'.
The collaboration between interior design educators and practitioners has continued over the years through participation in FIDER and support of its accreditation activities. Today, FIDER maintains relationships with the American Society of Interior Designers, the International Interior Design Association, the Interior Design Educators Council, the Interior Designers of Canada, and the National Council for Interior Design Qualification.


Support for FIDER comes from fees paid by interior design programs seeking accreditation and accredited programs, contributions from individual interior designers and the interior design professional associations, contributions from industry, and the proceeds from events sponsored by several publishers of the interior design magazines.
