Join us to learn about a proven and dynamic model for increasing regional diversity and value within the architecture and built environment industry.  Passed overwhelmingly by AIA National membership in 2021, the “Promotion of the UDream Program” Resolution 21-3 seeks to explain not only the benefits that the UDream program has had on the Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania region, but how this model can be applied in your own AIA component

Carnegie Mellon University ran the UDream Program successfully for 8 years by pairing architecture graduates with intensive postgraduate training, mentorship opportunities at local high schools, and internships at Pittsburgh architecture firms. As a result, UDream is responsible for more than 85% of all Black and Hispanic Architecture graduate students at Carnegie Mellon University. Additionally, the city of Pittsburgh saw over a 400% increase in underrepresented minority representation in Architecture, with 40-63% remaining in Pittsburgh with permanent jobs at the end of the program each year
