About the Fay Jones School of Architecture
The Fay Jones School of Architecture at the University of
Arkansas began in 1946-47 as architecture courses within the
College of Engineering. In 1974, the program became a school,
with Fay Jones serving as the first dean. In 2009, the school
was renamed the Fay Jones School of Architecture, at the request
of Don and Ellen Edmondson, former clients of Jones’, who made a
$10 million planned gift.
