Award Winners Selected!

The Access to Design Professions Project at Adaptive Environments Center has selected for the new awards program for teaching during the academic year 2003-2004. Ten faculty teams were awarded $1000 stipends to support design studios that address issues of social justice - both for students as well as users of the built environment.

This program is supported in part by a grant from the National Endowment for the Arts. This link will open a new browser window.
