Department Learning Goals
AAP students thrive in an environment that embraces a purposeful, integrated, and collaborative educational process.
In Feb. 2012 a student exhibition took a critical look at Schoolhouse South Africa and the merits of humanitarian design as a follow-up on the outreach project. Cornell University Sustainable Design (CUSD) orchestrated the outreach project, Schoolhouse South Africa, from research to design to construction. The result is the first such facility in Cosmo City, a community of 12,500 dwellings.
Five undergraduate art students have been selected as recipients of the 2012–13 David R. Bean Prize in Fine Arts and will study with the Cornell in Rome program this fall. Jon Atkinson (B.F.A.'14), Vincent Chong (B.F.A.'14), Jihyun “Joy” Jeong (B.F.A.'14), Natani Notah (B.F.A.'14), and Christine Pan (B.F.A.'14) were chosen by a jury of art faculty from a collection of student work.
Students in the Department of City and Regional Planning participated in an effort to help flood victims by coordinating survey mapping systems to obtain information about residents' most pressing needs.
