Department of Architecture Alumni Survey Draw Winners Announced

July 28, 2017 — 

Your feedback matters!

Thanks to the 150+ graduates who participated in the Department of Architecture’s Alumni Survey. Responses were received from individuals who earned degrees between 2017 and 1964. That is 53 years worth of valuable feedback and reflections. Thank you!

Congratulations to the winners of the draw:

Nina Ricci (B.ED 1998, M.Arch 2004) – $75 gift certificate from Deer + Almond.
Paige Lloyd (M.Arch 2007) – U.of M. Hoodie, and a bundle of publications.
Don Oliver (M.Arch 1986) – Faculty of Architecture mug, and a bundle of publications.

Nina Ricci is a registered architect working as a Heritage Planner with the City of Winnipeg
Paige Lloyd is Principal Architect of ARCCADD Architecture Inc.
Don Oliver is President of Northern Sky Architecture Inc. and past president of the MAA.

Survey Results
The survey results suggest we have many accomplishments to celebrate and some areas to enhance. One thing for sure is that the majority of our architecture graduates are becoming architects: 83% responding to the survey are either already licensed or on the path to licensure. Our graduates are also finding work fast: 92% were working in their field of choice within a year of graduating; 72% were employed in just three months.

Your thoughtful feedback informed the development of our action plan and the preparation of our program report, which is being delivered to the Canadian Architectural Certification Board on September 15th. Thanks again for your contribution to our self-assessment and ongoing program development.

Thanks also to all who participated in the three professional engagement sessions organized this summer, and to the partner firms who hosted them: Architecture49, NumberTEN Architectural Group, and Stantec.

We look forward to continuing the conversation with alumni and the professional community in the months and years to come.
