NEWSWORTHY ] MARCHING INTO THE FUTURE "I am honored to be the rst woman Chair of the Board of Directors of the BAC. As an Interior Designer, I am especially proud of the commitment to diversity that has led to my service as the rst non-architect to hold this o ce." We celebrate one shared vision--- to be the recognized leader in the education of design professionals, connecting theory and practice and engaging educators, practitioners, the allied professions and the public. e Board of Directors and Overseers are taking a leading role in this march by providing the governance structure and the collaborative spirit that will insure that the goals of the college will be achieved. We do not move forward by standing still and we have come a long way already. e Boston Architectural Club, as it was known in , was founded on the belief that if professionals work together they can insure their best future. If they teach what they have learned, they will continue a legacy that will empower their "o spring" to do likewise. Now a College, the BAC is growing into a broader community that includes not only design-minded, but also "design- hearted" progressive thinkers who will bring new perspectives to our table, locally, nationally and globally. We are organizing to fully engage our many internal and external stakeholders. We are taking steps to streamline gover- nance, increase communication and create a culture of equality. New initiatives have set the pace for increased involvement and celebration. Last September, the First Annual BAC Preview Party kicked o the year by honoring the many individuals who donate their valuable time and expertise in governing branches of the institu- tion; in October, the rst Board and Overseers Orientation was conducted to set the path to successful participation by the members of each of these esteemed governance bodies. And in January, the Annual BAC Retreat, entitled "Delivering the Goods: Collabora- tion in Practice," provided attendees with a multi-disciplinary cross-professional look at best practices that foster collaborative learning and engagement in the classroom and in the work place. Our stakeholders have done an exemplary job of supporting the numerous programs and events hosted by the College through their sponsorship dollars, in-kind contributions and cultivation initiatives far and wide. All of this said, it is our students, and the education we provide for them, that is our highest calling at the BAC. We accomplish this in partnership with the practicing professionals who instruct them, both in the classroom and in their rms. e BAC is in a unique position to be the model of cross-disciplinary design education and prepare students for the realities of collaborative practice---as a business and a lifestyle. e BAC has thrived and grown because of the deep seated commitment and unprecedented nurturing from the architectural Marching into the Future The Boston Architectural College is marching into the future---with arms wide open to progressive thinkers in diverse cultures, diverse professions, and diverse communities.
