Architecture students attend NOMA Conference

UDC Architecture Professor Kathy Dixon recently sponsored a delegation of UDC Urban Architecture and Community Development students to attend the 2014 National Organization of Minority Architects (NOMA) Conference in Philadelphia. Field trips are always fun, but she explains what made this one special:

"It was my last conference as national president of NOMA, so I thought it would be important to have some of our UDC students attend."

For this reason, Prof. Dixon's company, K. Dixon Architecture, sponsored four students to attend the conference. 

Under her two-year administration, NOMA entered into new alliances that will help the organization grow.  This includes partnerships with: Kaplan Architectural Education, Association of College Schools of Architecture, an MOU with US Green Building Council and a renewed MOU with the American Institute of Architects. 

"The organization is poised to take advantage of these collaborations under the new leadership of Kevin Holland, NOMA, AIA," explains Prof. Dixon, who was also inducted into the NOMA Council, an advisory organization affiliated with NOMA.
