Creating Extraordinary Outcomes for the Colleges and Universities of the FutureToday's colleges and universities are faced with many challenges: student retention, faculty recruitment, and the integration of new technologies. At RATCLIFF, we collaborate with our clients to reframe these challenges in new and inspiring ways. From the 1921 master plan for Mills College to today's design of the first California community college campus constructed on an urban infill site, RATCLIFF continues its legacy of enduring, distinguished architecture. Our architects interact with higher education institutions at critical junctures in their histories, helping them in their quests to create the whole citizen.
RATCLIFF crafts the links between buildings that foster creative scholastic environments. Our flexible learning environments are relevant to a diverse student population today and for generations to come. We design teaching and research laboratories, lecture halls and classrooms, specialized academic libraries, recital halls and rehearsal rooms, gymnasiums and recreational facilities, and student residential communities.
