College of Architecture, Planning and Design



March 30, 2015

Department Head Notes

As we make final preparations for the IAPD 50th Anniversary Celebration and Open House events, we thank all those who are so integrally involved in working towards success!

As you see in the photo above, we enjoyed visitors to IAPD last week who were engaged in several activities including individual critiques, formal reviews, talks and presentations. The combination of excellent design review coupled with expertise in manufacturing resulted in spirited conversation for which we are most thankful!

Be sure to help welcome incoming 1st year students to IAPD on Tuesday evening, attend the 5th year reviews Friday morning, and then make your way to Kansas City for the First Friday display of furniture on Friday evening.

Enjoy the week,
