Support Penn in DesignIntelligence Surveys

Dear friends,

These are exciting times at the Weitzman School. Through Stuart Weitzman’s incredible generosity, we’ve started a new chapter in Penn’s glorious history educating architects, landscape architects, planners, preservations, and artists. We are now in a much stronger position to recruit the best students in the world and support the visionary work of our faculty. Meanwhile, graduation is just around the corner, and with it begins a new chapter in the lives of our students.

This is also the time of year when DesignIntelligence surveys students and professionals about the best architecture and design schools in the U.S. The results will be published to a website as the 2019 America’s Top Ranked Architecture & Design Schools, where three sets of rankings will be reported: (1) Most admired programs; (2) Schools from which the greatest number of graduates are hired; and (3) Schools chosen as the strongest in each of twelve specialty focus areas.

So, we’re calling on alumni, students, and friends to take the survey. To reflect the enduring value of a Penn education, it’s critical that as many voices from the Penn community are heard as possible.

If you are a hiring or supervising professional in a firm, you’re eligible to participate. If you are a current student in the graduate architecture or graduate landscape architecture programs, or if you earned your degree in one of those programs after April of 2017, you’re eligible to participate.

Please use the link below that corresponds to your major or area of practice.
