Kwesi Daniels department head

Kwesi Daniels, a 2002 graduate of Tuskegee University, has been selected to head the university’s Department of Architecture in the Robert R. Taylor School of Architecture and Construction Science.

Daniels’ 15-year career has included teaching architecture and sustainability principles at the university level at Tuskegee University, Columbia University, the University of Illinois at Chicago, Temple University and New York University. Through his professional practice, he has garnered expertise in the areas of affordable housing development, historic preservation, sustainability, community outreach and urban design.

“Mr. Daniels’ dissertation research will be a major asset for our school’s efforts to employ strategies helping make our campus and the surrounding community more socially sustainable,” said Carla Jackson Bell, the school’s dean. “We look forward to his contributions, which I trust will build on the department and school’s rich legacy of excellence.”

After Daniels earned a bachelor of architecture degree from Tuskegee, he completed a master’s degree in architecture at the University of Illinois at Chicago and a master’s degree in sustainability management at Columbia University. He currently is finishing a Ph.D. in geography and urban studies at Temple University.
