Mission and Vision
Education Mission: The School of Architecture and Planning (SA+P) provides professional preparation for future Architects, Landscape Architects, and Planners. We provide access to all students, including those with less demonstrable preparation. Through our graduates, our programs advance sustainability and enrich and preserve cultural and built environments.
Research Mission: SA+P embraces an interdisciplinary agenda that promotes sustainability in its broadest sense. It engages research that value design and practice leading to problem solving and theory building, which focus on urban core areas of the region.
Service and Outreach: SA+P's service and outreach priority rests within our desire to support the neighborhoods of Baltimore. Service is provided to communities and nonprofit organizations through collaborative ventures.
Diversity: SA+P fosters knowledge and appreciation for the cultures and contributions of diverse segments of humanity and their environments. We promote the inclusion of students who have been traditionally excluded from the study of the built and natural environment.
The School of Architecture and Planning promotes a critical inquiry built upon the diversity of students and faculty working collaboratively to ensure innovative, exploratory, and socially responsible design and planning professions.
