This group recognizes the academic design institution as a resource for innovation and development at all scales. The mission is to foster improved quality of life by identifying humanitarian causes and working as interdisciplinary teams that connect design, architecture, art, planning, and other disciplines to conduct reseach, create new theoretical, frameworks and generate solutions. In spring 2010, I worked with a group of SAID graduate students who were interested in recognizing Humanitarian Design projects (such as the Roche Health Center project that I had been leading). As a result of the response to the Earthquake in Haiti, they were inspired to engage the DAAP students and faculty in a meaningful dialogue to address how our College and University can support communities in need around the world. The Niehoff Studio hosted the first-ever DAAP Cares event in its space on Tuesday, April 19th, 2011. The goal of DAAP Cares is to display and recognize DAAP as a resource for research, innovation and development in terms of design, architecture, art, and planning locally, regionally, nationally and internationally.

FIPSE Grant SAID Representative (with Associate Dean Anton Harfmann) Center for Cooperative Education Research and Innovation Grant PI's: Kettil Cedilcreutz and Cheryl Cates Student Knowledge of Sustainable Design Principles from the Employer Feedback Responses In Fall 2006, Anton Harfmann and Michael Zaretsky consulted with architecture employers to develop a set of questions on sustainability to assess employer perception of student knowledge of sustainable issues. The questions were as follows: 1. Understands how climate and location affect design. 2. Understands how sustainable principles inform design. 3. Understands how to apply the principles of embodied energy and indoor air quality to material selection. 4. Understands principles of daylighting and heat gain. 5. Understands principles of energy efficiency and water conservation. •

These questions were included in the employer feedback surveys that are completed following each co-op students’ employment at an architecture firm.

These questions are on a scale of 1 to 5 with 5 being the highest.

This chapter examines this data and provides feedback to impact future teaching in this subject area.

SBSE provides numerous and varied opportunities for member participation in the organization, resulting in increased membership benefits for all. SBSE serves five key purposes: Act as a support group for individual members Represent the subject areas of environmental science and building technologies to outside interests Offer a network for exchange of pertinent information through written, visual, and interpersonal means Promote research, creative activity, pedagogical excellence, and scholarship among the membership Support the institutional needs of technical education within professional curricula in architecture

SBSE is a highly respected, nationally known organization that includes nearly all of the academic leaders within the realm of sustainability. Nearly every book that I reference in my courses is authored by a member of SBSE. This organization has significantly influenced the teaching of environmental technology and sustainability at academic institutions throughout the world. I joined SBSE when the annual conference and retreat was held in Savannah, Georgia at the Savannah College of Art and Design while I was teaching at SCAD. I was the assistant site coordinator as well as the retreat website designer for 2005. I have participated in several successive retreats and was voted to be the Secretary / Treasurer of SBSE for 2007-2009.

The U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) is a non-profit organization committed to expanding sustainable building practices. USGBC is composed of more than 12,000 organizations from across the building industry that are working to advance structures that are environmentally responsible, profitable, and healthy places to live and work. Members includes building owners and end-users, real estate developers, facility managers, architects, designers, engineers, general contractors, subcontractors, product and building system manufacturers, government agencies, and nonprofits. Their mission is to transform the way buildings and communities are designed, built and operated, enabling an environmentally and socially responsible, healthy, and prosperous environment that improves the quality of life. LEED® Green Building Rating System™ LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) is a voluntary, consensus-based national rating system for developing high-performance, sustainable buildings. Developed by USGBC, LEED addresses all building types and emphasizes state-of-the-art strategies for sustainable site development, water savings, energy efficiency, materials and resources selection, and indoor environmental quality. LEED is a practical rating tool for green building design and construction that provides immediate and measurable results for building owners and occupants. I have been actively involved in the USGBC since 2000. I have been involved in the design of LEED rated buildings since 2000. I have worked on several LEED certified projects including the University of California at Merced Science and Engineering Building, for which I was a Project Architect and the LEED member for our firm.

Founded in 2004, Village Life Outreach Project, Inc. is an official 501 (c)3 non-profit organization based out of Cincinnati, Ohio whose mission is to unite communities to promote Life, Health and Education. Most of Village Life’s work focuses on three remote and impoverished villages in the Rorya district of Tanzania, East Africa. Village Life Outreach Project, Inc. abides by several guiding principles in our efforts to relieve suffering and spread love. Service to the Poor • Partnerships • Sustainability • Community • Collaboration Village Life’s designated teams for Life, Health and Education have created exciting projects such as water purification systems for access to clean water, distribution of mosquito nets to prevent malaria, and a school lunch program to combat severe malnutrition in school-age children. By illuminating and joining the struggle against poverty, disease and malnutrition in Africa, we hope to also strengthen our own local communities by exemplifying the ideas of humanitarianism, service and social responsibility. We would love to have your support. - from the Village Life Outreach Project website - www.villagelifeoutreach.org • • • • • •

Director of Roche Health Center (RHC) Committee for the Village Life Outreach Project (VLOP) I am the founder and Director of the Roche Health Center Committee. I created this committee to address the design, construction and management of the Roche Health Center in Roche, Tanzania with the Village Life Outreach Project. As with all VLOP Committees, there is a committee in the US, based in Cincinnati as well as a RHC Committee based in Roche Tanzania. During the design development, the project has been explored on a schematic level in graduate architecture studios that I have taught in SAID. This work has been the basis for extensive design development that has occurred on my own and with the assistance of dozens of individuals working for the Roche Health Center Committee. Some of these people are listed on the following page. The Roche Health Center Committee has engaged faculty from the College of Medicine, College of Nursing, College of Engineering, College of Education and College of Design, Architecture, Art and Planning (DAAP). In addition, engineers from ARUP Engineering, the Environmental Protection Agency and Architects from Emersion Design in Cincinnati have been involved. All of these individuals and organizations have seen the positive work that VLOP is striving to complete at the Roche Health Center and they have offered to get involved. I have spoken at conferences, in interviews for Cincinnati TV and spoken at community events such as the Greater Cincinnati World Affairs Council. VLOP has fully embraced the Cincinnati community and sought to introduce people across the city to this humanitarian project.
