The Council for Interior Design Accreditation (CIDA) is pleased to announce the winners of the 2014 Award for Excellence. This award recognizes and celebrates outstanding practices that advance the cause of excellence in interior design education.

The first place winner is Travis L. Hicks, Director of the Center for Community-Engaged Design and Assistant Professor in the Interior Architecture Department at University of North Carolina at Greensboro. Professor Hick’s entry, “Impacting a Campus…Engaging the Community,” was a team effort with colleagues from UNCG. The entry documents how UNCG’s Center for Community-Engaged Design (CC-ED) conducts community outreach to extend the teaching environment and encourage students to be civic-minded and committed to creating socially relevant and engaged design for the public good. “The CIDA Board congratulates Professor Hicks and his team on their outstanding example of incorporating various members of the community effectively while embarking on an ambitious number of projects varying in scale,” states Dr. Pamela K. Evans, Board Chair. Professor Hick’s team received a $5,000 award in recognition of this honor.
