mission statement

The relationship between the built and natural worlds must be sustainable. The EDC believes designers should pioneer this relationship. The EDC seeks to educate and inspire University of Oregon design students to have the awareness, sensitivity, and expertise to lead the community toward sustainability. While the EDC's focus is in the design disciplines, we welcome interested students and community members of all fields.

our mission is to:

  • Advocate for an interdisciplinary ecological design curriculum for AAA students,
  • Cultivate networking opportunities for AAA students with professionals practicing sustainable design of the built environment,
  • Create a forum for ecological design dialogue through the HOPES conference, traditional and digital publications, and on-going events,
  • Advocate for and implement ecological planning and design on the University of Oregon campus and Eugene community.
