The new college of design’s goal is to become a widely recognized leader in innovative,
sustainable and publicly engaged design. As one of only a small number of broadly
multidisciplinary design colleges located within a major research university, the college will be
unusually well positioned to advance interdisciplinary research, education, and public
engagement. The purpose of this document is to present a framework for developing the
academic initiatives and strategies that will move the college forward in achieving these goals.
Documents (final report, executive summary and final presentation) providing recommendations to improve the newly formed college of design by identifying current strengths of the individual programs, identifying potential areas of growth, promoting active public engagement in the new college and assessing recommendations regarding strategy for enhancing the college's prospects of becoming a leader in design.
