"What Renee [Cheng, Professor and Head of the University of Minnesota's School of Architecture,] has done is establish a roadmap which a lot of people can follow.

The program aims at halving the amount of time from high school to licensure for architects--from an average of 14.5 years to 7.</p> <p> <img alt="" src="http://cdn.archinect.net/images/514x/di/dimi5tyffhlukrjs.jpg" title=""></p> <p> By offering this model, the <a href="http://z.umn.edu/arch7" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">School of Architecture</a> nudges the profession toward true culture change, one that expects all students to be licensed upon graduation, regardless of their final career choices. It also takes advantage of recent changes to the National Council of Architectural Registration Board's Intern Development Program and Architect Registration Examination, and leverages the historically strong connection between practice and academy in the Minneapolis/St Paul community.</p> <p> <img alt="" src="http://cdn.archinect.net/images/514x/cb/cbd3mneovntox0r2.jpg" title=""></p> <p> <a href="http://z.umn.edu/bk3" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Architect Magazine</a> is out this January with a piece featuring the MS-RP degree.&nbsp; The article details the wo...</p> http://archinect.com/news/article/62849455/public-interest-design-100-honors-people-for-their-commitment-to-dignifying-design-for-all Public Interest Design 100 honors people for their commitment to dignifying design for all Keith Zawistowski 2012-12-06T13:07:00-05:00 >2012-12-10T18:51:00-05:00 <img src="http://cdn.archinect.net/images/514x/re/rex6ixjr43ri6mck.jpg" width="514" height="460" border="0" title="" alt="" /><em><p>There is a growing movement afoot in design.
