Mission StatementWe believe our first responsibility is to the students, faculty, staff and all others who visit any of our Campuses or utilize our services. The Mission of the University Architect’s Division is to protect the good name of Florida Atlantic University by providing and maintaining a physical environment that is conducive to an enriching academic experience.
