    • THE TRANSFORMATIVE POWER OF DESIGN
    • INTERNATIONAL IN SCOPE Whether through recruitment or learning opportunities, we seek to engage the broader world beyond University borders. Faculty and students from PennDesign travel the world to test their research skills, propose visions that address challenging issues of society and equity, and prepare to work successfully with across cultures and in other countries. Serving as working laboratories, traveling studios offer the opportunity to engage in complex real-world design problems. With past locations including Tokyo, Haiti, and Czechoslovakia, the exposure to new cultures, locales and people stimulate creative thinking and a broader understanding of complex design issues. Investment in international research, study and student aid make possible tangible connections among societies dedicated to improving quality of life for all citizens. Make an impact with your gift.

    • INTERNATIONAL IN SCOPE
    • COMMITMENT TO THE COLLABORATIVE Designers play critical roles in the success of our global economy both as agents of social change and as leaders in sustainable solutions for communities. Collaboration represents the best opportunity to capitalize on the collective knowledge of PennDesign. We want to embolden our community’s shared experience across departments to extend the frontiers of design practice, research and policy. Support for new initiatives in emerging arenas of student experience, interdisciplinary partnership, and dissemination of our school’s knowledge and leadership will leverage PennDesign’s reputation as the singular collaborative learning environment for design.

    • COMMITMENT TO THE COLLABORATIVE
    • BUILDING A WORLD CLASS FACULTY A distinguished faculty is determined by our ability to attract and retain far-reaching expertise, premier intellectual capital, and emergent research interests across the fields of design. Our goal is to endow all department chairs and significantly expand endowed professorships while providing our talented faculty the resources they need to lead. Endowed chairs and faculty positions enable us to recruit top candidates from around the world and expand research opportunities, demonstrating the power of PennDesign. Make an impact with your gift.

    • BUILDING A WORLD CLASS FACULTY
    • RECRUITING THE BEST TALENT At the heart of PennDesign, students are our school’s distinction. It is essential that our students can attend PennDesign regardless of need and without the barrier of restrictive accumulated debt. Student aid also is a critical component to competing successfully with our peer institutions for top talent. Support for financial aid is the cornerstone to recruit and secure the very best students. Globally, fellowship support for international students strengthens our international presence and relationships. An exemplary and diverse student community is paramount to growing PennDesign’s preeminence and global impact. Make an impact with your gift.

    • RECRUITING THE BEST TALENT
    • INFRASTRUCTURE FOR INQUIRY The belief that art and design can change attitudes and perspectives resonates at PennDesign. Gifts to support the central mission of our academic departments and programs facilitate a pattern of experimentation, production and independent learning for our school. Architecture merges the expressive with the practical. Our young architects are prepared to define, defend, and progress our built future with innovative thinking, responsive policy, and conscious design. City Planning faculty and students demonstrate the ability of designers to transform urban places and evoke new ways of understanding the assets of the past and the potential of the future. Landscape Architecture is preeminent in the world today, creating leaders in the field of innovative design as informed by ecology, the history of ideas, techniques of construction, new media, and contemporary urbanism. Historic Preservation is integrated to produce professionals responsive to the historic environment in design, adaptive use, planning, and management of buildings, cities, and regions. Fine Arts hold a special place at the creative center of PennDesign. Painters, sculptors and ceramicists study alongside animators, digital media artists, photographers and graphic designers and share the exploration of new directions for their individual and collaborative works.

    • INFRASTRUCTURE FOR INQUIRY
    • MEYERSON HALL: GATEWAY TO THE UNIVERSITY Standing uniquely at the entrance to the University’s campus, Meyerson Hall is a hub for design education and discourse. The Master Plan celebrates Meyerson Hall’s unique location and capitalizes on PennDesign’s capacity to be the first to welcome the world to the University. Identified needs include increased and enhanced spaces for studios, flexible spaces for collaborative research, and cutting edge environments for exhibitions and symposiums. Common areas foster interaction with the community and boost PennDesign’s commitment to collective knowledge and culture. Exterior spaces are integrated to create flexible environments for the entire University campus. The long-term vision for redesigning PennDesign’s campus will unfold in three phases: Phase 1 Expand and improve studio and common space for the greatest impact on learning and research, and address the most pressing infrastructure needs of the School’s buildings. Phase 2 Update faculty offices and research space to foster collaborative working environments. Phase 3 Define the entrance to the University campus with a new addition to Meyerson Hall that transforms the building’s façade. Make an impact with your gift.
