CBU Architecture is very happy to welcome Susan N. Harris to the program’s full-time faculty. Susan will be an assistant professor of architecture. She has spent the past several years teaching at Judson University in Elgin, IL and completing a research and documentation book cataloging her grandfather’s paintings. Susan has worked in the Chicago firms Skidmore, Owings and Merrill, and Serena Sturm Architects, as well as MacPherson Architects in Toledo, OH. She has had the privilege of working on projects in the Chicago area as well as those on other parts of the globe, from small scale residential to high-profile skyscrapers. Her research interests include the psychology of human interaction and cognitive response to the built environment, particularly as this relates to developing curriculum for the beginning design student. In the classroom she challenges students to recognize the implication and strength that space has on the human experience.
By the time school starts in the fall, Susan’s name will change to Susan H. Duemer, in that she will marry Blake Duemer in July.
Congratulations Susan, and we look forward to your new position at CBU this fall.
