Many architects felt that now, more than ever, they had to voice their concerns over the president-elect's policies that threatened their professional values&mdash;chief among them, the leveraging of architecture to perpetuate xenophobic rhetoric, through one of Trump's loudest campaign promises, the <a href="http://archinect.com/news/article/149935081/us-mexico-border-wall-competition-provokes-controversy" target="_blank">U.S./Mexico border wall</a>.</p><p>Many in architecture schools also felt the responsibility to organize and speak out, perhaps especially because of their position to influence the next generation of architects. Since the election, we've been reaching out to academic leaders from across the U.S. to hear how they were handling Trump's presidency&mdash;and what they were telling their students.
