All-college meeting held April 17, 2009

An all-college meeting was held during the morning of April 17, 2009, hosted by Dean Tom Fisher (Architecture). Good news about the college's good work could be found amid the floundering economic news. The college's participation in the University's Solar Decathlon effort is proceeding well, the School of Architecture had a successful accreditation visit, research funding is growing, faculty members are winning awards and recognition, and the college's various programs remain in high demand.

Fisher summarized the college's current situation by acknowledging a $1.2 million structural deficit. Fisher went on to outline the steps being taken to address the deficit and the additional cuts likely forthcoming from the University.
