The TORCH University program promotes the value of networking and professional development for students preparing to join the architectural, landscape, interior, computational, sustainability, and engineering professions. It introduces and advocates for the various institutions that support the profession to encourage healthy discourse about the profession and its members. The program features experienced practitioners, emerging professionals, and school representatives in dialogue about the challenges of transitioning from college to the profession.
