Faculty Areas of Specialization: EditEdit

  • =Faculty=

The faculty included below have been, for the past five academic years, teaching seminars, chairing colloquia for the RCID program, serving on examination-dissertation committees, and working on the RCID Advisory Committee. It has been our decision to add faculty from the College of Architecture, Arts, and Humanities as they actively live the life of the program, which includes those who are scheduled to teach in the near future, rather than to put forth a list of potential faculty, which is, indeed, immense across the CAAH. Other colleagues will soon appear in the list.
