Major Study on the Composition of the Architectural Profession
The National Organization of Minority Architects (NOMA), the National Organization of Minority Architecture Students (NOMAS), the American Institute of Architects (AIA), with the American Institute of Architecture Students (AIAS), the Association of Collegiate Schools of Architecture (ACSA), the National Architectural Accrediting Board (NAAB), the National Council of Architectural Registration Boards (NCARB), and the Coalition of Community College Architecture Programs (CCCAP), have come together to support one of the largest surveys ever conducted about the state of the profession.

This survey is being managed by Shugoll Research, on behalf of the organizations listed above. The survey is the result of a combined effort begun in Spring 2014 to conduct a demographic data audit with the purpose of developing a profile of the architecture profession to appropriately benchmark the profession and determine impediments to a diverse profession in architecture.


The survey will take about 15 minutes to complete, and we would greatly appreciate your input.


Please complete the survey by January 20th 2014. Upon completion of the survey, you can enter to win a $100 VISA gift card. All responses are kept completely confidential.
