The Department of Design and Environmental Analysis faculty are committed to using a broad-based and diverse set of social science and design methodologies to understand how the planning, design and management of the built environment affects individuals, groups, organizations and communities, and how this knowledge can feed the imagination to generate innovative design solutions to pressing social and cultural issues. Through our work on sustainable design and development we are also committed to examining and developing designs that contribute to the health of the environment as well as those inhabiting it. As a faculty we want our research, teaching, and outreach efforts to make a difference in the lives of students, faculty, and the diverse communities within which we all lead our lives.
