Design Educators Community

DEC Welcomes New Steering Committee Officers and Members

August 3, 2011 / By admin

AIGA Design Educators Community Steering Committee welcomes three new members — Frank Armstrong (California State University, Chico), Helen Armstrong (no relation) (Miami University, Oxford, OH), and Lee Vander Kooi (Herron School of Art and Design, Indianapolis, IN). We also are pleased to announce current members as our new Co-Chairs — Ruki Ravikumar and Holly Willis — working with Helen Armstrong who is assuming the role of Secretary. Sadly, Brockett Horne and Barbara Sudick rolled off the Committee after many years of service and enormous accomplishments on the behalf of the design education community.

Stacie Rohrbach will serve as non-voting, ex officio advisor for another year, but officially no longer a Steering Committee member. Louise Sandhaus will remain another year to support Ruki and Holly in their new role.
