our mission

The mission of the School of Architecture is to promote excellence in architecture and urban design education, scholarship, and practice in an inclusive and collaborative environment.


The vision of the School of Architectureis to be a nationally recognized program known for linking academic excellence and access, preparing students to be entrepreneurial change agents, and expanding the disciplinary capacities and contributions of architecture in advancing social, technological, and environmental justice.


Faculty and students at the School of Architecture are committed to creating an open-minded and creative atmosphere to pursue research, explore new forms of building, and discover collaborative practices that nurture human potential. Our graduates understand where knowledge comes from and how to integrate their voice with others to influence the art and science of architecture. The School of Architecture opens opportunities to students through interdisciplinary programs, close alliances with the profession, and active programs in the community.


We invite you to join us in our quest to question, apply knowledge, speculate, and engage in the discourse of how architecture shapes our lives!
