The Department of Architecture strives to provide an environment of respect and open dialogue to facilitate a positive learning culture for its students and faculty. Central to this environment is the encouragement of divergent views and explorations of a myriad of perspectives to produce socially and culturally responsive design resolution. Much of these activities take place within the studio which makes it imperative that the Department revisit its Studio Culture Policy periodically. While the current version was driven by the faculty, student participation was encouraged. The Studio Culture Policy in conjunction with the required CEA soft skills statement for all syllabi are significant moves towards fostering a positive work-school-life balance crucial to the learning culture of the Department.
