The Stuckeman Advisory Council is an aspirational group that assists the school in understanding what is important and/or emerging in our design professions, thereby helping to guide our future.
Shape the world!
The Stuckeman School, which houses undergraduate and graduate programs in architecture, landscape architecture, and graphic design, prepares the designers of tomorrow to shape the world in which we live through thoughtful, collaborative, and forward-thinking design solutions that impact virtually every aspect of our lives. Each of these programs – including professional and research-focused courses of study – is taught by leaders and designed to produce leaders, and consistently high national rankings and job placement rates attest to the success of our programs and graduates. The Stuckeman School is not just a design school – it’s an incubator of ideas, a place to problem-solve, and the next step in your design education.
Creativity, excellence, and inclusion in the Stuckeman School
In the Stuckeman School, we know that creativity and innovation are multiplied exponentially through a diversity of perspectives. Our school is a learning and research community devoted to design solutions for the physical, environmental, and cultural challenges of contemporary society. We value learning and working experiences that are inclusive and equitable in serving all people, regardless of gender, race, ability, sexuality, national origin, citizenship status, religion, or socioeconomic standing. In the Stuckeman School, we strive to build a culture of excellence and inclusion where our students and faculty feel a deep sense of pride, passion, and belonging.

Associate Professor of Graphic Design
The Bienal del Cartel Bolivia BICeBé – a biennial elite international design event in Bolivia – attracts the best designs from Latin America and around the world while promoting a humanistic approach to design. Two posters designed by Ryan Russell, associate professor of graphic design, were accepted into the 2019 BICeBé. Russell’s poster for “Deconstructing Symbols of Hate in America” was selected in the cultural category. His other selected poster, this time in the advertising category, was for an immersive augmented reality exhibition called “TOUCH.”
