Sustaining social cohesion

As architects and planners, we continually strive to create spaces and places where people belong. Today we draw on those values, principles, and disciplines to find ways to maintain a sense of community and cohesion in an extraordinary time. Our faculty, staff, and students are working together to sustain collaborative learning experiences and our sense of community.
