I want to take this opportunity to welcome you to the College of Architecture, Design, and the Arts and invite you to explore the many superb programs we offer. 

As a college of visual and performing artists, designers, architects, historians and museum professionals, we educate and mentor the next generation of cultural producers. We offer a range of academic programs spanning across evolving creative disciplines, organized under four schools.

Our internationally recognized faculty is committed to fostering a transformative learning environment and transmitting the skills and knowledge required for students to become critical thinkers, innovative practitioners, involved community members, and leading professionals in their field.

Immersed in the vibrant urban fabric of Chicago, we recognize that myriad possibilities arise when smart, energetic artists, designers, and scholars engage with the city.

So please enjoy exploring the college websites and learning about our innovative faculty and students. The UIC College of Architecture, Design, and the Arts is one of the most dynamic intellectual and creative learning and research environments in the country.
