Our Mission

Faculty and students within the College of Architecture engage both breadth and focus to examine issues currently facing the global environment and peoples, but more importantly to lead in the creative search for solutions to many of the problems and their sources.

While some issues fit cleanly into one area of responsibility or profession, many fit under an umbrella of social, cultural, political, and environmental concerns; the innovative strategies of a cross-disciplinary collaborative approach forge relationships among multiple

constituencies across the state university system and beyond. The public-private partnerships between the College of Architecture and others take advantage of synergies by pooling economic, human capital, and knowledge resources for mutual advantage and to the

betterment of the peoples of the state and the educational experience for students.
