The School of Architecture, Design & Planning: A New Vision

In August of 2015 some 75 faculty, staff, students, and alumni representatives gathered for a three-day Fly High Visioning Retreat, where we discussed where the School has been and where we would like it to go. We left energized by ambitious plans that embrace the tradition of Jayhawks who fly high, seeking—and seizing—opportunities. A summary of who we are and what we will be follows.
