“The College of Architecture has fully embraced the imperatives of the Universities Vision 2020 plan, and is committed to its full implementation. On their own and at their intersection, the built and the natural environments provide the fundamental foundation upon which societies exist, develop, survive and thrive. In the dual roles of being active providers of landscapes, infrastructure systems, and facilities within these two environments, and in some cases, of being custodians throughout their life span, the practitioners of the professions of landscape architecture, urban planning and design, architecture, construction, and facility management, among others, play a critical role in determining the quality, integrity, and longevity of this foundation.”

Dean Vanegas’  letter to Provost Karen Watson, Input from the College of Architecture to 2010 Strategic Plan



In the College of Architecture


Diversity is meant to encompass the full spectrum of characteristics of our community including (but not limited to) ethnic background, religious beliefs, age, political beliefs, socio-economic status, sexual orientation, physical ability and gender.

We believe that a diverse college is one that embraces the richness of this variety and provides an environment in which each individual is respected and celebrated.
