The annual DesignIntelligence surveys, which evaluate architecture and design programs across the United States, are now open—and they want to hear from you! DesignIntelligence has revamped its surveys to focus on individual program attributes and merits in the form of ratings, in order to better highlight the strengths of every design education program. The ratings will also provide important insight into how effectively programs prepare graduates for professional practice. Your participation will help strengthen Washington University's reputation as one of the most admired programs in the country, and reflect our research, our practice, and our design strengths.

The surveys are open to professionals with hiring/supervising responsibility, as well as to current students and recent alumni of our architecture and landscape architecture programs who have graduated in the past two years. The results will be published to a DesignIntelligence website this fall. Links to the surveys are below. The deadline to participate is Friday, July 2.

Our programs are defined by the accomplishments and strengths of our faculty, students, and alumni, and this survey helps to capture these important successes and key areas of distinction. We are deeply grateful for your thoughtful participation.


All alumni and firms responsible for hiring or supervising employees are eligible to complete this short survey. If you don't hold such a position, please consider forwarding this survey to a colleague in that role. Survey responses will remain confidential.

Please use the following links to access the surveys. If you hire in more than one discipline, you are invited to complete a survey for each discipline for which you hire.
