Vision and Mission

The Mission of the School of Architecture and Design is to provide a design and technology based 21st century professional education that enables leadership in the profession and within the community. The School of Architecture and Design established what is defined as three Core Values, or specific educational aspirations, that guide the approach of the School. The Core Values are:

  • Design Intelligence
  • Building Technology
  • Leadership

Design Intelligence refers to broad based skill and intellectual rigor earned by completing a challenging curriculum in design that emphasizes individual creativity, an appreciation of history, culture, and the contributions made by architects to the art and science of building.

Building Technology establishes the importance placed by the School on technology as a part of education in architecture and is made manifest in a well-developed curriculum in structures, environmental systems, sustainability and building construction. Course work is often carried out with hands-on exercises.

Leadership is an attribute of character that the School aspires to instill in graduates and is cultivated in many aspects of their education, including the inclusion of program-wide team projects that demand cohesive interaction and establishment of clear organizational structures to achieve project goals. Leadership is also developed through the holistic and ethical foundations of the NYIT education experience. The School actively participates in and international initiatives where student self confidence is acquired by working in collaboration with other institutions.
