Faculty and staff in the College of Architecture, Art and Design recently gathered for the annual end-of-the year retreat.

Faculty wrapped up some final business for the year before hearing presentations about Mississippi architecture by Emeritus Professor Michael Fazio and Mississippi artist Walter Inglis Anderson by Professor Brent Funderburk.

Funderburk, who will retire at the end of May after 36 years, was recognized after his presentation.

Staff joined in for lunch and a time to recognize Jane Lewis – the dean’s assistant, who will retire at the end of June with 32 years of service – and Jim West, who is stepping down as dean of the college also at the end of June. West has served in the role of dean for 17 years.
