The summer issue (Volume 8, No. 3) of the journal for the Association for Science in Autism Treatment features an article from Dr. Thomas Zane, Professor of Education and Director of the Applied Behavior Analysis Online Program at The Van Loan School of Graduate and Professional Studies Institute for Behavioral Studies. The article, “Apophenia: One Explanation for the Adoption of Fad Treatments in Autism,” discusses the possibility that a variety of new Autism treatments may be related to apophenia, the identification of meaningful patterns or connections in random or meaningless data.
Yesterday we announced some exciting news – a new survey by The Chronicle of Higher Education named Endicott as one of the best colleges in the nation to work for. The survey results, released in The Chronicle’s fourth annual report on The Academic Workplace, are based on a survey of nearly 44,000 employees at 310 colleges and universities.
The below guest post is from Michael Fior, faculty in the Visual and Performing Arts department. Myoung Joo Chun, Director of Graduate Interior Design, is the instructor of the studio. You can contact her at mchun [at] Endicott [dot] edu with any questions about the Interior Design Graduate program.
On Monday, May 16, the eight members of the first Endicott MFA and MA cohort assembled, somewhat anxiously, for the final critique of the semester-long ID515 Concentration Option Studio Project.
A number of guests attended to support the eight members with their comments and to celebrate together, including: Mary Huegel, V.P. & Dean of the School of Graduate and Professional Studies; Professor Barbara Maier; Kevin Renz, Associate Dean of Interior Design & Sustainable Design; Associate Professor Andrew Brody; Assistant Professor Robert Anderson; Robert Augustine, Adjunct Faculty; Kathy Moore, Visual Arts Coordinator; Kristin Solias, Adjunct Faculty; and John Hale, architect and owner of Hale Design Studio.
The Project Statement students addressed was a design for a School of Fine Arts. According to the Program, New York University had been given an endowment for the school, including funding to acquire and renovate a six story loft building near Washington Square. The University brief asked the Designer to create a building which was not only functional, but had a visual concept which would help establish the image of the school. The designer would also help to create the philosophical concept of an arts education.
