The College of Design, Construction and Planning is dedicated to demonstrating sustainable solutions in the built environment. We seek ways to meet the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet theirs. We explore the interrelatedness of the social, cultural, and environmental contexts in which we build to ensure that our designs address the idea of “Sense of Place.”
We welcome students who select us as incoming freshmen, find us through a change of majors or join us as a transfer student. We are proud to participate in UF’s Innovation Academy.
