Awards to USA and Canada teachers at member architecture schools to recognize excellence in community and university-based programming. Funding is intended to recognize community partnerships that address social injustice through architectural design.
Collaborative and community engaged design education can have transformative impacts upon both students and citizens. The Collaborative Practice is awarded annually to innovative and sustained initiatives that extend design education beyond the classroom and into communities.
This ACSA award recognizes programs that demonstrate how faculty, students, community groups, and/or civic clients, can work to realize common objectives. Participation by professional practitioners and colleagues from other academic disciplines is encouraged.
Collaborative projects and practice can encompass a variety of endeavors, including but not limited to: new construction, rehabilitation, open space planning, zoning and regulatory reform, community engaged research initiatives, and the development of new institutions or social processes.

The ACSA Awards Committee shall recommend to the ACSA board for approval no more than four projects for this award per year.
Persons in ACSA full-member and candidate-member schools who are primarily engaged in teaching may enter one or more submissions relevant to their educational activities. Projects that have previously been recognized by ACSA will not be considered.
All material must be submitted online by September 26, 2018 at 5:00 pm EDT. The submitter will need to log into the ACSA website in order to submit.
Submissions must explain the nature of the collaboration and demonstrate what students learned and how the community benefited.
