Research and community outreach are vital components of the core mission of the College of Architecture and Landscape Architecture and are fully integrated into the interdisciplinary educational experience.
- the scholarship of discovery: research that increases the storehouse of new knowledge within the discipline;
- the scholarship of integration: including efforts by faculty to explore the connectedness of knowledge within and across disciplines, and thereby bring new insight to original research;
- the scholarship of application: which leads faculty to explore how knowledge can be applied to consequential problems in service to the community and society; and
- the scholarship of teaching: which views teaching not as a routine task, but as perhaps the highest form of scholarly enterprise, involving the constant interplay of teaching and learning.
These summer day-programs for students are fun and educational.
