The Future of Iowa’s Past

Join Us for a Visioning Session
The Future of Iowa’s Past: A New Historic Preservation Program

at Iowa State University

Friday, Dec. 4, 2015

The College of Design at Iowa State University is developing an interdisciplinary Certificate in Historic Preservation. With an anticipated launch date of fall 2016, the certificate program will draw on the expertise of four departments within the college—Architecture, Community and Regional Planning, Interior Design and Landscape Architecture—as well as others across the university. Undergraduate and graduate students in any major with an interest in historic preservation and the historic built environment will be encouraged to pursue the certificate.

We invite members of Iowa’s historic preservation community to join us for a visioning session facilitated by ISU Extension and Outreach. Your input will help us design a program that reflects the needs of communities, developers and consulting firms and prepares students for work in this diverse field.

Topics to be covered include:
• Curriculum
• Internships
• Partnerships
• Field school/ISU Design West in Sioux City
• Study abroad
• Future master’s degree
