Howe appointed department head of interior architecture & product design

Nathan HoweThe College of Architecture, Planning & Design, or APDesign, announces the appointment of Nathan Howe, associate professor of architecture, as the new department head of the interior architecture & product design, or IAPD, department. He will take over for Amie Keener, interim program director, who has held the post since summer 2016.

"Over my eight years as dean I have witnessed Nathan's growth first-hand as a proactive, engaged faculty member and design leader," said Timothy de Noble, dean of the college. "My faith in Nathan to serve as our department head resides in his dedication to APDesign and K-State, his obvious affinity and appreciation for the scope and work of the IAPD faculty and students, and his consummate professionalism and sense of responsibility in accomplishing assigned tasks. Nathan is an inventive and collaborative designer. I am confident that he will bring these qualities to leadership at the departmental level, as he has at each level of leadership in the past; be it in year-level coordination, committee engagement, and in the representation of the college and his home department. Most importantly Nathan's attitude, as well as his design work, is not easily bound to any one discipline, but reflects an appreciation for the spectrum of disciplines in our college." MORE
