To lead, to educate and to participate in the careful stewardship, wise planning and artful design of our cultural and natural environments.
A world where the built and natural environments coexist in harmony and sustainable balance; where all peoples can express their diverse heritage and their individual desires to grow and thrive; and where we, as a profession, can substantially contribute to the process of achieving these ends.
