College of Architecture and Planning

CAP is community projects, immersive learning, field studies, and competitive projects that provide a gateway to engage and study the world of planning, design, landscape, and the built environment. Strong and dynamic programs outside the studio or classroom enable student and faculty aspirations to flourish. 

Donated funds help enhance a CAP education - sending students to competitions, purchasing materials for design + build projects, growing our scholarships, developing faculty, and supporting the guest lecturer series.

All gifts, small or large, contribute to the overall excellence of our programs.

CAP General Fund
Support our college general fund that enhances our programs in architecture, construction management, historic preservation, interior design, landscape architecture, planning, and urban design. Donations will help us to innovate and grow current initiatives and implement new technologies to bring CAP students to the forefront of their disciplines as they enter the workforce.

Cap Around the World Travel Fund 
(This fund can be used for any domestic field trip as well as international travel)

Out-of-pocket costs for students to participate in any of our field trips have grown dramatically, making such transformative experiences unattainable for some. By donating to the travel fund we are hoping to off-set the costs to allow more students to attend in 2023.

Solar Decathlon Build Challenge Fund

Students from the college are participating in the 2023 U.S. Department of Energy Solar Decathlon Build Challenge. CAP students have researched, designed, analyzed, and are helping construct a highly efficient, affordable house with community partners in Indianapolis (near east side). The design + build project engages a multi-disciplinary team of students from architecture, landscape architecture, urban planning, construction management, and interior design, providing opportunities for real-world, hands-on learning in support of life-long lessons in environmental stewardship and community investment.

Funds donated will help support building materials, equipment, and effort related to this impactful project.
