Looking to the Future
On October 17th, Gina Chorover, Kelly Smith, and Laura Jensen from the Drachman Institute, along with Courtney Crosson, Assistant Professor in the Architecture Degree Program, delivered a presentation to CAPLA faculty and staff in order to kickstart a visioning process for the future of the Institute. As a result of recent changes in leadership, including the current search for a new CAPLA Dean, Drachman has solicited input from interested faculty through an online survey and is embarking on an RFP process in order to best determine the Institute’s future role in both the college and the larger community.
Ultimately, 197 representatives from the community and 38 members of CAPLA faculty and staff completed the surveys, and the results of each are now available. Click to view the results of the community as well as the faculty and staff surveys.
Thank you everyone for your valuable input!
