Higher Education

At Perkins+Will, we believe in the power of education to elevate the human condition – to create innovators and leaders who can resolve the challenges of the 21st century. We believe in the power of great design to shape the educational experience and to inspire human success.

As institutions evolve and respond to an unpredictable future, they are continually faced with challenges in strengthening and sustaining their resources, their community, and the environment. At Perkins+Will, we believe that the concept of stewardship includes planning for a future where each project protects, cultivates, and supports all three of these critically important aspects. This means programming, planning, and designing resilient facilities that frame intentional activities and outcomes, and contribute to the achievement of institutional goals and objectives.

During the past 30 years, we have worked with nearly 300 colleges and universities across the country and the globe. Our clients range from community colleges and liberal arts institutions to research universities and business and medical schools. Our goal is to assist each institution to optimize their greatest assets, accomplish their academic goals, and thrive in learning, research, and community engagement.
