How can I share information with the Architecture Division community internally and externally?

An Architecture Division Digest is sent to all currently enrolled students and all recent faculty every other week. Alumni Newsletters go out on a monthly basis. Use the Digest submission form to share news or to promote events and opportunities for the Digest and Newsletter.

Additionally, Architecture Division email groups can be used to communicate with current students and faculty more immediately. Emails are moderated, and staff will review messages ASAP before sending.
