Congratulations to Jessica Canfield and Huston Gibson! The Provost and President have awarded them tenure at the university and will promote them to associate professor!
This cyber announcement doesn't replace our traditional celebration. It will be quite awhile before all of us are in the same place at the same time, so our celebration will be delayed.

Where can you see the work of  James Corner, Chris Reed and Michael Van Valkenburgh all in one place?
In the Chang Gallery in Seaton Hall.
