Lifchez Professor of Practice in Social Justice
In May 2020, Raymond Lifchez, Professor Emeritus of Architecture and City & Regional Planning, donated $2.5 million to endow the Lifchez Professor of Practice in Social Justice. An alum of the Master of City & Regional Planning program, Lifchez taught in the college for over five decades. In his graduate studies he developed a course centered around the concept of accessibility in architectural design.
A tribute to the work and teachings of Professor Lifchez, the Lifchez Professor of Practice in Social Justice honors the importance of design education around accessibility and disability justice. Recipients are asked create courses involving student engagement with local communities.
The endowed professorship rotates every two years among the Departments of Architecture, Landscape Architecture & Environmental Planning, and City & Regional Planning.
