Texas A&M University is undergoing a foundational effort to develop an Academic Master Plan which will both enable and guide the implementation of the Vision 2020 plan. As part of the effort, the following documents are available for download and review. These "white papers," authored by departments, centers, institutes, and faculty members in our college, propose areas of excellence where the College of Architecture can assume a global leadership role in the research portfolio of the Texas A&M System.
All faculty, staff, and students are encouraged to read these papers and then share any comments by emailing the Associate Dean for Research using the subject line “Landmark Areas.”
Note: You must have a PDF reader to be able to view the documents below.
