School of Interior Design

Cause

Enhanced Technology and Exhibition Boards

Used to display student work for Pin-ups, external reviews and overall a Gallery Exhibition within the Studio for students to learn. These boards will also be utilized for Recruitment and Gallery Exhibition within the studio in Johnston Hall. Currently, work is displayed on tables, the floor, window sills, etc. as we pursue CIDA accreditation it has been recommended this upgrade is essential.

Other technologies include a 3D Printer for the Interior Design Studio

Reason

As we develop the next generation of leaders in interior design and architecture, the opportunity for our students to have new technologies that expand their research with faculty and provide learning outside the classroom is of the utmost importance. Through support of the School of Interior Design A Day Cause, your funds would provide our students with the opportunity to utilize technologies in the classroom that will impact projects, design research, and provide professional experiences that will set them a part from their peers as they graduate from Anderson University. Your gift will provide funding for exhibition boards and other cutting edge technologies for our student experience and development within the School of Interior Design.

Impact

As members of the faculty and AU family, we believe this technological enhancement for our students in interior design will significantly enhance their learning experience through hands-on experiences and real world applications, provide additional credibility and professional development as our students interact in the world of design, and most importantly, show future employers and university peers that AU is on the cutting edge of technology and academia through these student resources and technologies.
