Rula Awwad-Rafferty Professor


I teach a range of design studios, hands-on applied and theory courses (cultural and spatial agency, universal design, ... etc); Junior and Senior ID studios (community based) and theory courses. Previously I also taught Junior, senior, and graduate LARC studios and theory courses, graduate studios and thesis, integrated college and university curriculum, and advise undergraduate and graduate students in the college/university. 

Serve as a faculty adviser for the umbrella multicultural student organization on campus--UNITY.
Member of President Diversity Council, as well as on other university and community committees.

I embrace a scholarship of outreach and engagement, pedagogy, and discovery; from participatory/emancipatory approach; weaving many narratives to understand the numerous authentic stories of place, identity, and people. I love working across many paradigms and disciplines, always pushing a boundary or exploring a possibility.
