Van Duzer travels with students to Malawi

In May and June, Leslie Van Duzer (Architecture) traveled to Malawi in southeast Africa with five undergraduate students and a teaching assistant. The University of Livingstonia invited the group to design site plans for their two campuses and remodeling plans for a dormitory. Additionally, the architecture students worked closely with leaders in the local community to design a new hospital administration building and a tourist map of Livingstonia, a turn-of-the century mission station located on a beautiful high plateau overlooking Lake Malawi. The M-Term was part of a University-wide effort initiated in 2007 by John Ziegenhagen, director of strategic projects, and now has the support of the School of Architecture and the dean's office in the College of Design. Van Duzer will return to Livingstonia in May 2009.
