Interior Design Advisory Board

The Interior Design Advisory Board is composed of professionals representing various areas of the interior design profession, interior design program faculty, and selected College of Design administrators.  The board serves as a sounding board for decisions the program must make, helps us challenge assumptions about the profession, and increase our awareness of changing technology, trends and practices that will influence our students’ readiness for professional service.  The board provides an opportunity to build relationships, develop resources and strengthen our identity within the professional world.
