Dean's Message

Welcome to the School of Architecture, Design, & Urbanism at Institute for Art & Culture. We are a community of intellectually curious designers, builders and makers, leaders, and stewards. Through critical thinking, deep reasoning, and effective communication, we explore and learn about the transformative power of design, planning, and construction. Our rigorous, relevant programs provide numerous opportunities to engage in the different aspects of creating place, space, and experience from the intimate to the infinite.

The school currently offers bachelor’s degree programs in Architecture, Interior Design & Construction Management.

We seek ways to address and anticipate the critical issues of our region, nation, and the world. Through research initiatives, outreach activities, and leadership opportunities, our accomplished and dedicated faculty will nurture, challenge and mentor you.

If you are considering a career in the built environment, I invite you to go through our brochure, our webpage, and our social media sites as well as get in touch with the faculty and students of the IAC. I am sure you will not only find something that ignites your passion but also discover a place and a group of people who can transform you into a creative professional who will make our future built environments just, equitable, safe, and sustainable.
