Budget and Enrollment Survey

Architecture Schools Hire More Full-time Faculty for 2022-23

The annual survey, now in its thirteenth year, asks schools to identify changes in budgets, enrollment, applications and academic staffing over the previous year. ACSA members comprise both public and private institutions, primarily in the United States and Canada.

The 2022-23 ACSA Budget and Enrollment Survey includes responses from 63 ACSA Full, Candidate, and Affiliate member schools and efforts in the area of equity, inclusion, and diversity are showing marked progress for student enrollment and pedagogical practice.

Trends in academic staffing show an increase in full-time faculty being hired and very few schools are reducing full-time and part-time faculty. Architecture school budgets appear strong and stable, and most programs reported an increase in undergraduate applications and enrollment. This year, we asked new questions about spatial equity in studio, studio hours, and the length of administrative appointments.
