The College of Architecture and Environmental Design at Kent State University is dedicated to preparing graduates for leadership in a rapidly changing world, focused on professions relating to the design and construction of the built environment. Whether Architecture, Interior Design, Urban Design, Landscape Architecture, Healthcare Design, or Construction Management, our commitment is to the education of professionals who are committed to enhancing the built environment, improving the quality of life, protecting and enriching public welfare.

The college broadens students’ exposure to advanced tools, techniques, theories, and complements its progressive curricula with robust co-curricular opportunities ranging from lecture and exhibition series, to symposia and traveling workshops. Experiential, collaborative, cross-disciplinary, hands-on, project-based learning in classrooms, studios, and labs–as well as on project sites and in domestic and foreign cities, is key to a vibrant, forward-leaning education at the College of Architecture and Environmental Design.

The college invests in scholarship and research in the various disciplines, and in the dissemination of new knowledge. It contributes to the public welfare through outreach programs to assist communities in their efforts and interest in improving the physical environment.
