The University of Arkansas’ Fay Jones School of Architecture
Designs a Diversity Pipeline
Through recruitment, outreach, and satellite programs, the University
of Arkansas’ Fay Jones School of Architecture is creating a
conduit to a more diverse profession. The school’s diversity
initiative to target under-represented and under-utilized communities,
in its sixth year, is part of a campus-wide plan, and reaches across
both the school of architecture and landscape architecture. It targets
adding more members of underrepresented ethnic groups and women,
as well as fermenting a more generally diverse intellectual climate.
