The mission of the Tulane School of Architecture is to prepare students for leadership positions in the design professions and in their communities. This school aspires to provide the highest quality professional education in architecture, to develop and conserve knowledge, and to promote excellence and innovation in architecture, landscape urbanism, preservation, and urban and environmental design and development. The School aspires to reach many students within and beyond Richardson Memorial Hall through undergraduate minors in Architecture, Sustainable Real Estate Development, Preservation Studies, and Social Innovation and Social Entrepreneurship, and graduate certificates in Preservation Studies and Sustainable Real Estate Development. The School recognizes the centrality of design thinking as a process of synthesis that incorporates history, theory, technology, economics, behavior, and culture. The School supports diversity and meaningful engagement with urban and community issues, while embracing the creative potential and imperative of sustainable design.


Tulane’s purpose is to create, communicate and conserve knowledge in order to enrich the capacity of individuals, organizations and communities to think, to learn and to act and lead with integrity and wisdom.

Tulane pursues this mission by cultivating an environment that focuses on learning and the generation of new knowledge; by expecting and rewarding teaching and research of extraordinarily high quality and impact; and by fostering community-building initiatives as well as scientific, cultural and social understanding that integrate with and strengthen learning and research. This mission is pursued in the context of the unique qualities of our location in New Orleans and our continual aspiration to be a truly distinctive international university.
