Learn about our History

The Taylor School of Architecture and Construction
Science (TSACS) is named after Robert Robinson Taylor,
the first accredited African-American architect, and
the first Black to receive an Architecture degree
from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT).
Taylor is credited with developing the school’s program
in architecture and was often placed in charge of
the day-to-day operation of the school in the absence
of the founder and first President, Dr. Booker T. Washington.
Robert R. Taylor designed most of the buildings on campus
built prior to 1932.

[TUSKEGEE INTERACTIVE VIRTUAL TOUR (MI TU VCIT)]

(MAKING AN INSTITUTE,

TUSKEGEE UNIVERSITY VIRTUAL CAMPUS

INTERACTIVE TOUR)

MI TU VCIT is a historical tour that reimagines

Tuskegee’s campus as it existed from its founding in

1881 to the death of Booker T. Washington in 1915.

It is a joint, interdisciplinary project between Tuskegee’s architecture

and history programs. The tour was completed by Tuskegee

faculty and students in these areas along with the

generous support of the National Endowment

for the Humanities.
