NEWS & UPDATES
COLLEGE NEWS
As we see the devastation of the severe weather and flooding in Nebraska and adjacent states, each of us individually responds in our own way – donating supplies or money or helping in other ways. We have many students in our college who reside in the counties affected by this severe flooding and it is difficult to imagine if our own family home was destroyed, or our farm and livestock and how that might affect us in so many ways.

What can we do as a college? Join me on Tuesday, March 26 at either 8:30 am or 3:00 pm in the Gallery for a discussion to propose positive actions (especially those based on our areas of expertise) we can take to help. Come with your ideas, or to listen and react. Our intention is to develop a coordinated response in conjunction with the university. 

Additionally, if you are a student, staff or faculty member who has been affected by the flood, the university has information and resources available to assist Huskers though the recovery process. Click here for more information. https://www.unl.edu/flood-response/

AROUND THE BUILDING
INTERIOR DESIGN
Welcome back! I hope that you all had a productive spring break in the way you wished it to be. We find ourselves in an exciting and busy time of the year with summer and fall registration, juniors are finalizing internship plans and the seniors have their sight on pursuing job prospects and graduating in just a few short weeks. If you need any help navigating this process please don’t hesitate to stop by my office to discuss.
At the beginning of the month, Nate Bicak and myself attended and presented at the 2019 Interior Design Educator Council Conference in Charlotte, North Carolina. Bicak’s poster titled “Making Space: Towards Best Practices for Makerspaces” was reviewed and awarded a top 10 distinction. Additionally, Bicak presented his scholarship in teaching and learning titled “The Learning Spaces Studio: Interdisciplinary Collaboration and Enduring Engagement”.
LANDSCAPE ARCHITECTURE
The importance of diversity is a growing theme in our profession. Diverse landscape as opposed to mono cultures are proving to be far more sustainable and resilient the face of environmental challenges. Diverse business organizations are proving to be more successful in the face of our ever-changing world(s). Diverse communities, those that embrace difference in all its forms, have proven to be more vibrant and innovative in the face of the challenges facing society. Our program is no different.

Tau Sigma Delta
The Tau Sigma Delta ASK help desk exists to help students realize their designs. ASK has assembled a panel of tutors who have skills ranging from digital modeling to presentation ability. The new ASK Help Desk format will directly match a volunteer tutor to a student in need of help. Tutors and students will set up a time and place to meet that is convenient for both.
 
For more information about the ASK Help Desk and the subjects it covers, please see the attached poster. If you need help from the ASK help desk, please email your question to:
