Vision & Mission

SA+P Vision Statement: (adopted May 20, 2010, with slight revisions on January 13, 2012 and March 12, 2015)

Morgan State’s SA+P’s vision is to be a leader  and a role model for HBCU’s in preparing fully qualified architectural, design, and planning practitioners and construction managers in the exploration and documentation, design, planning and management of the built and natural environments through interdisciplinary applied research, theory building, and community based outreach.  SA+P will promote the inclusion of students traditionally excluded from the study of the built and natural environments.  It will also embrace the cultures and contributions of all peoples and times in this study.  In addition to our focus on Baltimore, Maryland, SA+P will adopt a regional, national, and global outlook in its activities.
