Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion at the CUSoA

In the last ten years the School of Architecture has increased the diversity in demographics both in faculty and students, but continues efforts to create a more equitable and inclusive environment. The architecture of South Carolina is consequently affected by the lack of diverse and inclusive voices in the profession. For the employment in local practices and firms, we are the main educators of future generations of registered architects in the state of South Carolina. It is imperative that this tenure-track candidate brings a diverse, inclusive, and equitable pedagogy and a progressive approach to teaching, as well as an understanding of how equal representation in professional practice has a direct impact on the communities least represented in this field. This candidate is expected to have a clear understanding of history and to embrace the emerging culture of inclusivity.
