The mission of the Academy is to be the recognized source of knowledge for the architectural profession and resource for its members by providing quality education and leadership development for the enhancement of the practice and profession of architecture.


  • Serve as the Credible Voice
    Provide the members and AIA as the credible voice for quality design and the built environment.
  • Be the Authoritative Source
    Be the recognized leader for knowledge about the practice and profession of architecture.
  • Increase Member Value
    Increase Member value through programs and services that effectively meet, anticipate and exceed their needs.


After several years’ consideration and discussion a core group of AIA Cincinnati Board members began developing a new methodology to deliver member education and leadership training programs in an effort to add value to its members and their firms. On March 8, 2011, the AIA Cincinnati Board of Directors approved the launch of the Academy | Education by AIA Cincinnati.
