I was asked to join this committee by our interim chair, Prof. Vaidya, to help develop a new 5 year Bachelor of Architecture Degree Program and prepare documents and infrastructure to guide the program through the accreditation process. This work is ongoing and includes research into national trends in BARCH programs, new course development, development of program assessment strategies, and implementation strategies.
I am an active participant in the development of the new degree program for a BARCH accredited degree, During the faculty workshops to develop the strategy for the degree, I helped compile peer institutional data to place our current studio credit and contact hours in context to support the underlying argument that we needed to increase both.
