On October 17th, staff 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 is soliciting input from interested faculty and the Tucson community in order to best determine the Institute's future role in the college.
