We are also successfully enrolling internationa l students in our online Sustainability Certificate program. Global learning opportunities were pursued through several trips abroad. Executive Vice President Jim Dunn, E xecutive Director of Educational Initiatives Curt Lamb and Director of Global Education Anna Stephanidou traveled to Athens to present the BAC’s online Susta inability a nd Distance M.A rch. programs to Europea n students and faculty, a nd to explore European school s’ c onnections to the BAC’s online programs. I visited the art and con ser vation program at SACI in Florence, a nd the Fontainebleau arts program in Franc e, to f urther develop with each of these school s opportunities for BAC design study abroad and exchanges. A doz en of our students participated in our annual summer studio based in Paris, headed by the BAC’s Associate Provost for Student Development R ich Griswold.

I keynoted a three-day AIA national plenary conference on diversity in the design professions, with a focus on producing deliverable strategic steps and tasks for improving diversity in architecture. The se remarks were favorably noted in the May, 2008 editoria l in Architectural Record. We are taking important steps toward diversifying the demographics of the de sign profes sions.
