    The University of Oregon School of Architecture and Allied Arts (A&AA) will soon have a new name and a new organization designed to “enhance the programs, bring increased value to the degrees earned, and position the students, faculty and staff for greater success.”

    In a message to the campus community, Scott Coltrane, UO provost and senior vice president, announced his approval, which will transform the school into the College of Design.

    “The quality of these programs is a pillar of the university’s strong reputation around the world,” Coltrane wrote. “These changes will build upon the university’s strengths, foster collaboration and innovation, and continue to create student experiences that are second to none.”

    The name will officially change July 1, with the new organization on track for implementation with the start of fall term.

    “The new model will give greater identity, flexibility, funding and philanthropy opportunities to each of the schools and components within the college while preserving the historic cross-disciplinary enrichment,” said architect Larry Bruton, a 1967 UO graduate, honorary member of the dean’s advisory council and former partner at ZGF Architects in Portland.
