School of Architecture Faculty & Staff

Our award-winning faculty and staff are active professionals and dedicated educators.

Small class sizes result in frequent one-on-one interactions. In these moments, as well as through lectures and studio reviews, faculty and staff share their experience and insights and help guide students to realize their potential. Collaborations are common, and it’s not unusual for students, faculty and staff to continue working together after graduation.
