A note from Dean Jack Davis: DesignIntelligence Surveys

Note: The deadline has been extended to Friday, July 13!

Dear Colleagues,

DesignIntelligence is conducting their annual surveys of America’s best architecture and design schools. If you are a person in your firm who hires architects, landscape architects, interior designers, or industrial designers,  you are invited to share your experiences and perspectives. The annual rankings are today’s leading resource to rank architecture and design programs on the basis of their ability to prepare graduates for professional practice. You can access more information about the methodology and results of last year’s research at the DesignIntelligence website:

The short questionnaires will require approximately 10 minutes of your time. Please plan to finish the survey in one sitting; you will not be able to return to the survey at a later time. The responding party must be in a leadership position qualified to hire employees. If you are not qualified to complete this questionnaire on your firm’s behalf, we ask that you forward it on to a more appropriate person. Individual responses to this time-sensitive survey will be kept confidential, but a listing of the responding firms may be published.

Please respond by Friday, June 10, using the online surveys:



Landscape Architecture:


Industrial Design:


Interior Design:


The results will be published in the 18th annual edition of DesignIntelligence’s America’s Best Architecture & Design Schools, to be released in September 2016.

If you have any questions or comments, you may contact DesignIntelligence Publisher Bob Fisher at

Thank you for your confidence in us and for your professional contributions.
