Mission/Vision & Services

Our Vision

The Educational Design Institute, in collaboration with students, parents, educators, school administrators, school boards, and communities, will encourage the creation of safe, accessible, flexible, and developmentally-appropriate learning environments that will help students learn and teachers teach.

Our Goals

  1. Establish EDI as a source for school planning and design issues through regional workshops, conferences, and publications.
  2. Establish EDI as a collaborative partner with the Mississippi Department of Education Office of Safe and Orderly Schools and progressive Mississippi architecture and engineering design firms.
  3. Promote and update the Mississippi School Design Guidelines, which contain critical information concerning the design, construction, and maintenance of safe and effective school facilities.
