董事会在2010年提高建筑建设科学的工程，建筑和物理科学（CEAPS）学院的部门架构和建设科学（TSACS）的罗伯特·泰勒所学校的罗伯特·罗宾逊的名字命名 Taylor, the first accredited African-American architect, and the first Black to receive an Architecture degree from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Taylor is credited with developing the school’s program in architecture and was often placed in charge of the day-to-day operation of the school in the absence of founder and first President, Dr. Booker T. Washington. Most buildings on campus built prior to 1932 were designed by Taylor, including the original Chapel, Dorothy Hall (now Kellogg Hotel & Conference Center), Tompkins Hall, The Oaks (Washington’s family home), and White Hall. TSACS is founded on a belief in the power of architecture and construction science to uplift the human condition and give form to society‘s highest aspirations. Students are prepared to become citizen architects and builders - community leaders who provide a vision of a better-built environment.
我们的使命是培养专业技术人员谁能够通过所有的人有意义的地方建设塑造社区发挥积极作用。 As such, our intent is to keep working to help our current and future students to have a competitive advantage that will both distinguish themselves from students at peer institutions and advance their career goals. We also envision a new identity in the minds of alumni and stakeholders to help carry out our mission and the academic rigor to nurture a generation of highly competitive designers and builders.
