Professor Duncan Stroik Honored with 2016 Arthur Ross Award
Established in 1982 by Arthur Ross and Henry Hope Reed, the Awards are granted annually by the Institute of Classical Architecture & Art in recognition of the achievements and contributions of architects, painters, sculptors, artisans, interior designers, landscape designers, educators, publishers, patrons, and others dedicated to preserving and advancing the classical tradition.  Duncan Stroik, in addition to having designed beautiful and remarkable churches and other building types, has made a seminal contribution to the discussion about sacred space.  Through his efforts to found the Institute for Sacred Architecture and the Sacred Architecture Journal, he has led the discussion about a return to classical principles in the making of religious buildings and notably Catholic Churches. 
Convening a Diversity and Inclusion Task Force

Supporting a diverse faculty and student body is one of the goals outlined in the School’s strategic plan, as we firmly believe that the School is enhanced by a wider perspective and range of experiences which expands the reach of our mission to promote built environments that are durable, beautiful, and supportive of strong communities.To help create a plan for how to meet this goal, Dean Lykoudis asked a select group of six alumni, who are all now successful professionals, to form a task force on diversity and inclusion at the School. The members traveled to South Bend on March 21-22 to meet with faculty members, diversity officers from across campus and with students. The group discussed goals, strategies and tactics for increasing diversity in hiring of faculty and graduate student recruitment, as well as ways of ensuring that all faculty, staff and students experience an inclusive atmosphere. The group is now preparing a draft report with preliminary thoughts on things the School and the University is getting right, as well as suggestions for areas of improvement. 

Thank you to the task force participants Nana-Yaw Andoh ’00 B.Arch, ’07 MArch, Braulio Casas ’94 B.Arch, ’96 MArch,  Darryl Daniels, AIA '86 B.Arch, Christine Gregory '14 B.Arch,  Holly Mizelle Johnson '94 B.Arch, and  Ming Hu '03 M.ADU for their time and dedication to the School and this important endeavor. If any other alumni or friends have suggestions or wish to be involved in these discussions, please contact the School.
