Mission & Vision

Over the next 3-5 years, we will identify and support activities that broaden awareness of our unified vision for the Program in Environmental Design and enhance the pool of qualified students seeking admission to our program.

We will ensure an inclusive and creative experience that fosters opportunities for students to engage with core subject matter through hands-on projects with their peers, faculty and our community. Additionally, we will build stronger research capability in environmental design.

By uniting critical thinking with making and doing, CU Boulder’s Program in Environmental Design is pioneering an integrative approach to education and research that will shape the future of design.

Built upon strong traditions within the design fields, including architecture, landscape architecture, and planning, we are an inclusive and creative community committed to enriching our built, social and natural environments.
