The School of Architecture and Planning is pleased to welcome three new members to its Dean’s Council, a leadership group of architects, urban planners, developers and community leaders that works in direct support of the mission of the school and provides key links into the practice arena for student support and research cultivation.
Formed in 2013 with six founding members, the Dean’s Council has grown to a group of 12 distinguished professionals, many of them graduates of the school. The Council focuses in particular on the school’s strategic efforts to build global reputation, improve the quality of life in Buffalo and communities worldwide, and advance diversity, equity and inclusion across our student body and our professions.
“The addition of Brad, George and Lena adds to an already distinguished group of professionals on our council,” says Dean Robert G. Shibley. “These new members bring a broad array of additional experiences that will help the council fulfill its mission to advise and support the school.”
The Dean’s Council is chaired by Gensler principal Madeline Burke-Vigeland, who also serves as studio director in the firm’s New York office and as firm-wide leader of Gensler’s community sector practice areas.
