Arch Schools 2014 Exhibition Reception and Deans' Roundtable

The Center for Architecture’s tenth annual Arch Schools exhibition showcases exemplary student work from 13 New York area schools: The City College of New York, Columbia University, The Cooper Union for the Advancement of Science and Art, Cornell University, New Jersey Institute of Technology, New York Institute of Technology, Parsons the New School for Design, Pratt Institute, Princeton University, Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, University at Buffalo (SUNY), University of Pennsylvania, and Yale University. Join us to hear the school of architecture deans discuss current directions in architectural education. Moderated by Frances Bronet, Provost and Vice-President at the University of Oregon, the tenth annual roundtable will examine the role of leadership in architectural education.

Little is scripted about the dimensions of leadership, and even less about their connection to the various communities these schools influence. These communities include students, faculty, the academy writ large, outside disciplines, and the larger professional fields. What is taken for granted? And what is the opportunity for Deans of Architecture to affect the larger cultural, social, environmental, and political debates? These topics and more will be addressed during the Arch Schools 2014 Deans' Roundtable
