Transition to 2020 Conditions and Procedures

As programs continue to implement the 2020 Conditions and Procedures, questions and requests for clarification related to the transition are welcomed. To support the programs in the process, the NAAB Board of Directors issued a clarification related to the transition from the 2014 Conditions & 2015 Procedures to the 2020 Conditions and Procedures, noting that programs accredited under 2014/15 C&P will continue submitting required Interim Progress Reports (IPR) to address identified deficiencies. For all other accreditation purposes (i.e., requests for additional site, branch location, etc.), programs will use the 2020 Conditions and Procedures.
New NAAB International Certification Resources

New resources for visiting teams and programs have recently been added to the International Certification page on the NAAB website: the Handbook for International Certification Visits, the Guide to Preparing the Program Self-Evaluation Report, and the Virtual Visit Supplement to the 2019 Procedures for NAAB International Certification.

Guides to a Career in Architecture

NAAB is excited to share two guides aimed at demystifying the education and career options in architecture for prospective students:

A guide for K-12 students provides helpful information about pursuing a career in architecture—including key skills, recommended academic preparation, and next steps after high school; and a guide for K-12 school counselors and educators provides helpful information for guiding students toward a career in architecture.

The American Institute of Architects (AIA), American Institute of Architecture Students (AIAS), Association of Collegiate Schools of Architecture (ACSA), National Architectural Accrediting Board (NAAB), National Council of Architectural Registration Boards (NCARB) and National Organization of Minority Architects (NOMA) developed the guides with the goal of expanding the pipeline of students who may not have considered a career in architecture.
