Society of Multicultural Architects & Designers (SMAD)

The Society of Multicultural Architects and Designers SMAD was created in order to supplement the academic curriculum with multicultural pedagogies in all spatial design majors, with an emphasis on architecture. In doing so, the intent is to bridge the gap between these various design majors.

SMAD also addresses the issue of admissions and retention of students of multicultural ethnicities in design majors by assisting the School of Architecture with programs that increase admissions of multicultural students, as well as supplying a student support network that will assist any and all students.
