Dean's Message:
Did you know that architecture and design services are an export for the State of Nebraska? The firms in the state are among some of the most sought after in the nation and design projects throughout the world!
 
Similarly, the impactful contribution of the disciplines in our College of Architecture to the communities, organizations and economy of the State of Nebraska is measured in a variety of ways. The more tangible aspects are measured through the number of graduates who accept positions here in the state; or the number of hours our students and faculty contribute toward exploration of issues and identification of opportunities.
 
One recent example from last semester includes the architecture studio led by Associate Professor Steve Hardy, working collaboratively with the Lincoln Fire Department to analyze and prototype fire and rescue stations. An estimated 2,110 hours were calculated on this project including the professor and 12 students for the 7-week project. Examples like this occur in each discipline here in the College, and we take pride in the richness involved in helping communities and organizations envision and evaluate options for their future. Likewise, the meaningful contribution to our students’ professional preparation creates a win-win situation and one that is true to the Land Grant Mission of the University.
