ID Strategic Plan

Interior Design Program Mission


The ID program contributes to human well-being:

  • By preparing interior design practitioners and scholars who can fuse research inquiry, creativity, global competency, and social responsibility to lead the development of interior environments that serve the public.
  • By engaging the knowledge and experiences of multiple disciplines and sectors to explore how interior environments are implicated in societal challenges, and
  • By proposing solutions to issues surrounding interior environments that range from theories to practical applications, policies, and pedagogies.


MS/MA and PhD students learn how to pursue interdisciplinary inquiry to explore answers to pressing questions confronting people in interior environments so they can lead and serve in academia, business, and industry.
