Our Higher Education Practice believes in the power of design to improve institutional performance, attract top faculty and students, enhance the learning experience, and inspire future innovations. Our projects range from two-year technical colleges with the primary mission to train a more skilled workforce, to leading research universities whose discoveries will shape the future on a global scale.
