2008 Milestones
During NEOCON 2007, Kimball Office sponsored a panel of educators and practitioners to discuss the shortage of interior design educators. The discussion resulted in the formation of a task force, Kimball Office Working Group on Sustaining the Future of Interior Design Education, to further address the declining pool of educators. Kimball Office pledged financial support. The purpose of the working group is to identify strategies to promote design education as a career choice and mechanisms by which the pool of qualified interior design educators can be increased.
