The 2017-2018 academic year is winding down and there is much to report and celebrate. The year has flown by, beginning with opening of the Charleston Design Center in August and wrapping up with the College of Architecture, Arts and Humanities commencement ceremony on Friday, when we will welcome the college’s class of 2017. Congratulations to our new graduates!
This month, we take special note of several faculty and staff retirements, including Dana Anderson (School of Architecture), Terry Farris (Real Estate Development), Leora Hall (Philosophy and Religion), Lillian Harder (Performing Arts), Roger Liska, (Construction Science and Management), Tom Oberdan (Dean’s Office), the late Roger Simpson (Languages), Steve Sperry (City Planning and Real Estate Development), and Jim Barker, Professor of Architecture and President Emeritus.
In honor of Jim’s retirement, we have mounted an exhibition of his drawings and watercolors in the dean’s office. This is the first on-campus collection of his work. It’s a remarkable exhibition, and I hope you will have time over the next several months to drop by 108 Strode to view it.
There were tremendous accomplishments throughout the college over the past year (and too numerous to list here). I do want to share just a few recent highlights:
Finally, I want to express my gratitude and sincere appreciation for five outgoing department chairs who have dedicated years of service to the College of Architecture, Arts and Humanities, our students, faculty and staff:
