Welcome Year 2020! The School of Design and Construction (SDC) has had many wonderful developments since our last newsletter. We have a new website. Surf and see what we are up to from community engaged classes, to industry mixers, research labs, student awards and much more. Some of our recent news is included in this e-newsletter, but you can visit us online anytime and see up-to-date happenings and events.

The SDC is engaging in a strategic planning process to chart our 5 year plan (2020 – 2025). This is being done in connection with and concurrent to the university and college process. We are calling upon the industry advisory boards to help with this effort. We will discuss the progress in our next newsletter and solicit broad input in the coming months.

The alumni and friends’ support is something that distinguishes WSU and the SDC in particular. Your gifts help to create transformative experiences for students, allow us to engage with underserved populations throughout Washington, perform cutting edge research on the built environment, and prepare students for the workforce. Please consider donating to the SDC Excellence Fund.
