College of Architecture & Planning

Remember the sleepless nights finishing your projects and the gallons of coffee consumed during a semester? Not every discipline requires such devotion to their studies. You are a unique breed of creative and dedicated individuals making changes to the environment in which we live.


The College of Architecture and Planning is more than just a campus learning experience. It is community projects, immersive learning, field studies, and travel programs that provide a gateway to engage and study the world through design and the built environment. Strong and dynamic programs outside the studio or classroom enable student and faculty aspirations to flourish. 


Unfortunately, the out-of-pocket costs for a student to engage in projects and experiences outside the studio or classroom have grown dramatically, making such transformative experiences unattainable for some. On average, if every student who traveled during an academic year was gifted an extra $600, CAP students would have little to no expense. That seems like a small amount to help transform a student’s learning experience. 


Help us continue the proud CAP tradition of preparing students to become successful, accomplished professionals, and of course, keeping the ideas and coffee pots flowing.
