De Noble and Rolley selected as Most Admired Educators

Tim de Noble, professor and dean of the College of Architecture, Planning & Design, or APDesgn, and Stephanie Rolley,  professor and department head of landscape architecture and regional & community planning, have again been selected and recognized by DesignIntelligence as among the Top 25 Most Admired Educators in Architecture, Interiors, and Landscape Architecture for 2019.

As stated by DesignIntelligence, "Each year for the past 19 years, DesignIntelligence has conducted the same survey across the design industry regarding architecture school rankings. The number of valid responses from hiring managers of architecture and design-professional firms typically range between 2,600 and 3,200, year over year. But this year was markedly different: with more than 4,500 valid responses, which may reflect the urgency of improving architectural education." (FULL STORY)
