Bruin leads DHA team to participate in Engaged Department Program

A Design, Housing, and Apparel (DHA) team led by Marilyn Bruin (Housing Studies) is one of six departments that have been awarded a grant to participate in the University's Engaged Department Program. The program's purpose is to infuse community engagement more fully into the programmatic features of a department's teaching and/or research activities. The other DHA team members are Sherri Gahring (Apparel Design), Barbara Martinson (Graphic Design), Kim Johnson (Retail Merchandising), Hye-Young Kim (Retail Merchandising), and Becky Yust (Housing Studies). Brenda Kayzar from Urban Studies also joins the team. The project focuses on retail, graphic identity, and housing at UMore Park.
