The Office of the University Architect serves as an "aesthetic conscience" for our beautiful, walkable campus, and we play a major role in all long-range campus planning. We provide support for land use, zoning, and regional development initiatives. We coordinate preliminary architectural studies for major new structures and alterations to existing structures, oversee interior design, furniture planning, exterior graphics, and site development. You can often catch one of us walking around campus, enjoying our current architecture and spaces, while also imagining our campus over the next 100 years.
