Dean: Dr. Michael Speaks

The College of Design strives to be a leading force in the world of design, dedicated to building a spirited and collegial environment where excellence is celebrated.

This is accomplished by creating a community in which students are encouraged to exchange ideas and explore the inter-disciplinary connections that exist between the various practices of design. Through this approach, the college educates, trains and prepares students for leading roles in an innovation-driven economy.

The college also serves as a hub for promoting ground-breaking research. By partnering with manufacturers, energy providers, and researchers, the college is not only increasing the intellectual capital of Kentucky, but applying design thought to global challenges.
