We are consistently proud of the thesis work done by our Interior Design students, who display massive amounts of creativity, attention to detail, and design practicality when presenting their projects.
We’re happy to announce that the ASID, the oldest and largest professional association for interior designers in the US & Canada, agrees!
Emily Dyer, MA in Interior Design 2012, was awarded the ASID Foundation’s Joel Polsky Academic Achievement Award for her MA Thesis, “Dwelling in The Home: Designing for Mindfulness, Connection and Well-being.”
The Joel Polsky Academic Achievement Award is given annually by the ASID Educational Foundation to recognize an outstanding undergraduate or graduate student’s interior design research or thesis project. Selected research papers or doctoral and master’s theses address such interior design topics as educational research, behavioral science, business practice, design process, theory or other technical subjects. Entries are judged on content, breadth of material, comprehensive coverage of topic, innovative subject matter, bibliography and references.
Emily and Myoung Joo Chun, Director of Graduate Interior Design Programs here at Endicott, traveled to Chicago to attend the ASID Design Awards Ceremony at the Spertus Institute on June 11. Emily’s award was presented by Judy Pickett, FASID, Chair, ASID Foundation Board of Trustees.
