Director of Urban Studio Inducted into AIA College of Fellows

Cheryl Morgan, Auburn architecture alumna, Professor and Director of the Urban Studio, was inducted into the American Institute of Architects College of Fellows at an Investiture Ceremony at the 2014 National AIA Convention in Chicago on June 27th.    Prof. Morgan was nominated for the College of Fellows by the Birmingham Chapter of the AIA, in recognition of her innovative approaches to instruction and outreach and the impact of her work in these arenas on the careers of her students and in the lives of small towns and communities across the state, region and nation. Morgan’s non-traditional approach to teaching has evolved through her thirty years of studio teaching and through her work with under-served people and places in Alabama. For more, read here.
