Willamette River

A unique academic ecosystem, the College of Design comprises not only creative practitioners—artists, architects, and designers—but also social scientists, humanities scholars, engineers, economists, biologists, planners, and policy makers. Using diverse methods, we are engaging critical questions and tackling complex problems.

 

Whether creating in the studio, doing fieldwork and internships or studying objects at the museum, College of Design students are learning hands on and working directly with faculty.

Deep and Diverse Questions of Environment

Public Engagement is Central to Our Practices
