Dean's Message:
This week we welcome the Landscape Architecture Accreditation Board (LAAB) site visitors as they evaluate the work; and interview faculty, students, staff and administration to ensure the program continues to meet the requirements for accreditation. Please join me in welcoming the team to UNL College of Architecture! The display of work in the gallery is incredible, and an open house will occur this evening.

Last week I had the opportunity to join faculty and students from Community & Regional Planning at the NPZA/APA conference in Kearney. The sessions were enlightening and educational, and the Emerging Planners Group social provided an opportunity to meet with alumni in an informal setting. CRP Alumni are a diverse group and I enjoyed this time learning more about each of those present!

In this final week prior to Spring Break, there are many activities including Architecture thesis reviews, candidate presentations, Basket Brawl, student presentations and deadlines. Please be considerate of one another in terms of cleaning up space after you occupy it.
