    AIA Maryland is working on a resolution to be presented to the 2022 Annual Meeting that would make us more inclusive, now.

     

    The resolution proposes that AIA National would make it a top priority to work with the 35 states which demand a NAAB

    Architectural degree in order to take the Architectural Registration Exam to permit substitution of work experience for college

    Credit.

     

    At present, 15 states, including , the largest state, permit applicants to substitute architectural work experience for

    College credit, usually at two years work experience for one year of college credit.

     

    With college tuition rising to new heights, many applicants cannot afford to spend six years in college to obtain the NAAB degree.

     

    Among those are disproportionate numbers of racial minorities, who cannot afford the rising prices.

     

    Thus, while African Americans comprise over 13% of population, only 4% of architects are African American.

     

    In the 15 states which accept work experience in lieu of college credit, folks who must work to keep fed and who must help support other family members can learn about our profession even as they amass credit towards taking the ARE.

     

    Remember, no architect gets registered in the unless they pass the ARE, so there is protection for the public HSW.

     

    Since work experience in lieu of college is an established fact for nearly half our profession, let us make it universal in all 50 states and

    welcome the greater variety of people and viewpoints who could thus hope to join us.

    Consideration should be given and opportunity made available to all qualified individuals who can demonstrate a proficiency and acumen that demonstrates qualifications to be an Architect. It's not a competition. The world needs good architects. Regardless of who you are, life happens as the saying goes, interrupting or preventing outright an otherwise competent individual from completing studies at an accredited institution. This is a place where we should be open minded especially in light of everything happening now.
