On Friday, March 10, students from the College of Environmental Design led a discussion and peaceful protest against the Trump Administration’s proposed border wall in the Wurster Courtyard. The demonstration brought together students across disciplines for a dialogue relating to the wall, to share ideas and consider the agency and responsibilities of those working or studying in the environmental design disciplines and industries in relation to its construction.
The discussion included a question and answer segment that allowed students to voice their concerns about the proposed wall and the role of students and future environmental designers in the matter.
Dean Jennifer Wolch and Associate Dean for Undergraduate Studies and Professor of Architecture and Urban Design Renee Chow were also on hand. Wolch shared with students CED's legacy of activism, and linked their effort to the “Stop the War” sign painted on the facade of Wurster Hall to protest the Vietnam War in the 1970s.
