WHY WE ARE HERE

VISION: Empowering voices, ideas, and actions for the future.

WHAT WE DO

MISSION: Advancing leadership, design, and service among architecture students.

We promote excellence in architecture education, and training:

Architectural practice is constantly evolving and we understand that a large part of this evolution begins within education. The AIAS strives to be ahead of the curve; providing our members with invaluable experiences that will prepare them for entering the profession and beyond.

We foster an appreciation of architecture, design and related disciplines:

Our events and programs are geared towards encouraging students to discover and ignite their true passions. Each AIAS opportunity is developed to appeal to students of varying backgrounds, experience levels, and interests.

We enrich communities in a spirit of collaboration:

Through the Freedom by Design™ program and other community outreach, we empower our members and students as a whole to be good citizens on their campuses and in their communities.

We organize students and combine their efforts to advance the art and policy of architecture:

We are the sole student voice in the collateral discussion and decision-making process that include The American Institute of Architects (AIA), The Association of Collegiate Schools of Architecture (ACSA), The National Council of Architectural Registration Boards (NCARB) and The National Architectural Accrediting Board (NAAB).
