    According to the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC),  “[Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design] LEED Green Associates have a documented, up-to-date understanding of the most current green building principles and practices, and are committed to their professional future.” Some of our own FIU Master of Interior Architecture candidates can now consider themselves LEED Green Associates.

    This year, there were even more MIA candidates who passed the exam than last year, demonstrating students’ acknowledgement of the importance of obtaining the hard-earned professional credential and implementing LEED in the built environment.  The FIU Interior Architecture Department would like to congratulate the following candidates:

    Anamary Fernandez
    Edna Desulme
    Fabiola Delgado
    Midori Shim
    Milagros Canada
    Stephanie Jenkins
    Vanessa Martin
    Viviana Zuluaga

    In an effort to support the sustainable professional development of its students, the FIU Interior Architecture Department offers reimbursement to Master of Interior Architecture candidates who take Professor Katie Rothfield’s Sustainable Practices in Interior Architecture course and successfully pass the LEED Green Associate Exam.  Each year, LEED Achievement Awards are given to a selected number of students who apply for the award and pass the exam.  Award funding is made possible by money raised by the annual Festival of the Trees event.
