The College of Architecture and Design (CoAD) offers undergraduate and graduate degrees in a range of design-related disciplines with emphasis on professional practice and technological innovation. The College cultivates a broader multidisciplinary discussion within its university which presents design as having a central role.

The Department of Design, within the College of Architecture and Design, prepares students to critically engage creative inquiry, visual literacy, and design thinking, with an emphasis upon practical application and social responsibility. This is accomplished through a commitment to history, theory, and making within both traditional and emerging practices. Our methods embrace the dialogue between physical and digital approaches and technologies, and are designed to support the education of a new generation of innovators.

The appointment will commence in Fall 2024.
