Jaquelin T. Robertson Visiting Professorship in Architecture
The Jaquelin T. Robertson Visiting Professorship in Architecture is used to attract scholars and professionals from outside the University to the School of Architecture to promote a more diverse and international faculty as exemplified by Jaquelin T. Robertson, former faculty member and dean of the School of Architecture from 1980 to 1988. Mr. Robertson's work was directed at the research and the design of the public realm, with emphasis on comprehensive strategies for development. His big ideas, dedication and influence were pivotal in transforming the School of Architecture into what it is today'one of the premier schools of architecture in the nation. The Board of Visitors established the professorship in June 2007.
