Career benefits from studying abroad

BY TIM CLARK
@ VOL 4 ON MAR 02, 2017

Over three teaching-abroad experiences, Tim Clark observed students rapidly gaining many of the kinds of personal and behavioral qualities that employers say they most highly value in job candidates. As these qualities are hard for students to bulletize, and even harder for interviewers to assess and validate, study-abroad experiences can connote these crucial distinctions.

The Seneca-Salamanca Leasehold Study

BY BRADSHAW HOVEY, PH.D.
@ VOL 18 ON SEP 24, 2016

"They wanted to infuse architecture with research and they proposed to build a pedagogical process around project work."

In The Seneca-Salamanca Leasehold Study from PechaKucha Buffalo Vol. 18, Research Associate Professor 
at the University at Buffalo School of Architecture and Planning, Bradshaw Hovey, Ph.D., recounts how one of the great student research projects from the school's 50-year history was devised by the school's founding leadership. One of the very first projects to engage UB students was a paid commission for the Seneca Nation of Indians to advise them on negotiations for a new lease between the nation and the residents of the City of Salamanca, NY whose homes sat on Seneca land. That such a project would be undertaken by architecture students was a signal about how expansively the founders of the school conceived of its professional domain.
