John Pai BID ‘62 and Keith Kirkland MID ’15 are this year’s winners of the Rowena Award.
The Award promotes the educational pedagogy of Rowena Reed Kostellow, FIDSA, by celebrating the kind of design excellence she taught her students. Two great examples: John Pai has been producing beautiful sculpture for his whole life and Keith Kirkland demonstrated his entrepreneurial design drive founding WearWorks in 2015.

The right of autonomy over one’s own body is foundational to human rights. On June 24, 2022, the Supreme Court of the United States' decision to strike down Roe v. Wade stripped this foundational human right from over half of the U.S. population, including over 160 million women and girls.
The Industrial Designers Society of America (IDSA) congratulates Patricia Moore, PhD, FIDSA, for receiving the World Design Organization's 2022 World Design Medal.
Dr. Moore was inducted into IDSA's Academy of Fellows in 2003. She has held prominent roles within the Society, including West District Vice President, and is widely considered to be a pioneer of Universal Design. IDSA is a longtime member of WDO.
