AT THE COLLEGE OF ARCHITECTURE, PLANNING AND LANDSCAPE ARCHITECTURE, WE ARE BUILDING A CHANGING WORLD.

We are innovators of transformational strategies, championing a future-oriented perspective where hands-on design and planning stimulate sustainable innovation and solve the grand challenges of the built environment in a daring, authentic environment.

CAPLA is made up of two schools, the School of Architecture and the School of Landscape Architecture and Planning; together with the college, we house 13 academic programs. Additionally, the Drachman Institute functions as the primary outreach arm of the college. 

Diversity and Inclusion

CAPLA is committed to creating and maintaining an environment free of discrimination. In support of this commitment, UArizona prohibits discrimination, including harassment and retaliation, based on a protected classification, including race, color, religion, sex, national origin, age, disability, veteran status, sexual orientation, gender identity or genetic information. We are dedicated to inclusive excellence; the recognition and acceptance of the talents, worldviews, perceptions, cultures and skills that diverse communities bring to the educational enterprise that can be harnessed to prepare students for leading, living and working in a diverse world.
