July offers opportunities to connect with our people out in the field. We hope to see you at events this month.
Tuesday, July 17
Cindy Villarreal will present ‘Methods and Tools for Integrating Resilience Into Comprehensive Campus Planning’ at the SCUP Annual Conference in Nashville, Tennessee. Climate risk is no longer abstract and planners must learn how to evaluate climate risks on campuses and within host communities. Strategies for mitigating these risks can be incorporated into comprehensive plans specific to each institution's location, risk tolerance, and budget. In this session, you will learn how to access information about natural hazard event risks and gradual climate projections in your campus's region. By sharing resilience design lessons, we will give you tools for integrating resilience into campus planning and adapting strategies on a campus-wide scale.

Malcolm Davis will present ‘The Architecture of Remembrance: Social Justice and Community Healing Through Design’ at the AIA Mississippi Convention in Memphis, Tennessee. Learn from the team of the National Museum of African American History and Culture in Washington D.C. about understanding the community’s history, events of significance, and cultural shifts. Using a series of case studies, Malcolm will illustrate how to determine the appropriate physical and interpretive representation, leveraging your story and unique cultural perspective to promote reflection, integrate culture and inform policy.
