Welcome message from the Dean
Welcome to the School of Built Environment and Development Studies (BEDS). It’s my pleasure to be leading a School that has had many accomplishments and to be working with a highly capable team of Academic Leaders and staff members. Our School is uniquely positioned to foster research, scholarship and community engagement through the creative and intellectual drive of our staff and students.
The School of BEDS is home to the disciplines of Architecture, Housing and Planning all of which comprise the Built Environment cluster. It is also home to the disciplines of Community Development, Population Studies and Development Studies. The synergistic and interrelated nature of these disciplines enhances our School’s ability to provide the critical mass that responds to the challenges of underdevelopment in our communities, country, region and continent at large.
