Academics

The School of Architecture & Environment is a unique academic, professional, and creative design community. We are founded on the principles of interdisciplinarity and collaboration. We are driven by curiosity and experimentation. We create and share knowledge. And we are committed to furthering sustainability and social equity in a time of accelerated environmental and social change. We help students develop the values, knowledge, skills, and practices they need to create better architecture and environments that resonate with people and their cultural, physical, and ecological worlds.
