Monday Memo 02.22.16

I am out of the office this week, working from Arizona and then traveling to the University of Arkansas to conduct an external review of the landscape architecture program. I can respond to e-mail at the beginning of the week but not on Thursday and Friday. Please let me know if you are submitting a FDA or USRG application (if you haven't already). I will appreciate a draft of your application by noon on Friday. As always, I welcome draft text addressing the significance of your proposal to your career, the university and others.
