In order to facilitate rel ationships with design profe ssiona ls who reflect our entire student body, the BAC has created a series of progra ms that identify and highlight the stellar design work of diverse designers we have brought these profes sion als to our c ampus to meet with students under a variety of circumstances.

Combining divergent ways of thinking, non -t raditional approaches to solving problems, multi-cultural awareness, sensitivity to the needs of persons who may be different from ou rselves, tolerance of ideas we may not initially understand, and openness to new w ays of addressing needs, is essential to achieving thoughtful, creative, in novative and client-centered design .

We strive to effectively serve diverse clients in a multi-cultural world.” — President Ted Landsmark NEWsWoRThy ] commITmENT To dIvER sIT y 13 pRacTIcE
