THE MIDTOWN CAMPUS PROJECT 

WHAT WILL BECOME OF THE SANTA FE UNIVERSITY OF ART & DESIGN CAMPUS (SFUAD)??

So far the online survey results (2,234 in total) from Santa Fe residents made it clear that those who responded were primarily affluent, older, white community members, BUT we need to have the voices of our communities of color, families, youth, and working class communities represented in this HUGE investment of public lands & resources.

The City is coming to the final “Evaluation" phase of the Midtown Campus Project. Residents will see their ideas and suggestions come to life as concepts for the SFUAD campus
