In recognition of her work bridging the classroom-community divide, Tulane University School of Architecture faculty member Emilie Taylor Welty received the Barbara E. Moely Service Learning Teaching Award from the Tulane Center for Public Service (CPS) on Dec. 6.
The award is presented annually to a professor who integrates community partnerships into classroom learning and enhances higher education’s contributions to the public good.
Taylor (TSA ‘06) is a professor of practice and design/build manager at the Albert and Tina Small Center for Collaborative Design. At the Small Center, she guides projects and community partnerships that provide opportunities for students and faculty to engage issues in the community through design.
“I am honored to receive this award from the CPS team and see it as recognition of the work so many of Small Center staff, students and partner organizations have achieved together,” said Taylor. “I’m fortunate to work with teams of collaborative and dedicated folks as we work towards a better city.”
Taylor is the second School of Architecture professor to receive the honor. For more information on the Center for Public Service at Tulane University, visit https://tulane.edu/cps/.
