Think. Plan. Design. Build.
These words form the bedrock foundation of the School's educational mission. We expect our graduates to be able to think critically, to plan intelligently, to design creatively, and to build efficiently - in the various combinations appropriate for our professional disciplines. The unfailing satisfaction of those here who teach and provide student services lies in the knowledge that, based on this foundation, our graduates will have the appropriate preparation for outstanding professional careers and fulfilling lives.
Favored as we are by KU's extraordinary natural environment overlooking the City of Lawrence, we offer a distinctive sense of place and inspiring educational environment. Our students are drawn here from far-flung locations and diverse backgrounds - and are assured of the opportunity for a fulfilling college experience and first-rate preparation for professional careers.
