Kevin Stevens

Kevin is always available for help and guidance. He looks at the design process holistically; he is always down for thesis-based design but also challenges his students to show how it can be actually realized through development of details and thoughtfully integrated systems. He also encourages students to engage precedents and case studies as a means of choosing best practices when it comes to difficult design decisions. This synthesis of design and integrated systems, along with his deep knowledge of precedents, challenges students to produce architecture that functions well aesthetically, functionally, and programmatically.

Mark Stanley

Mark is helpful and insightful and makes you think of things in a way that you normally wouldn't. He pushes us to work hard and pay close attention to the details in our work. He also has a fantastic sense of humor and gives good lectures.
I've never thought I would learn so much in the first 4 weeks of a studio. Thanks, Mark.

Russell Crook

Russell is always willing to give his time to see how your doing. In a world where it is difficult not to be performance-driven, Russell is purely motivated by helping and caring about those around him. He has been a great adviser, and I appreciate his efforts to make me a better student!

Thanks Russell!

Anne Smith

Anne has been a consistent beacon of support throughout my time at UT. She was crucial in helping me see my career path and feeling confident in working towards it. She is an excellent leader who truly cares about those she is leading!

Thanks Anne!

David Gras

David renews my enthusiasm every time I see him! He has given countless opportunities which have enriched my education greatly, and consistently motivates me to be passionate about what I do.

Thanks, David!

Dave Williams

Working on a PhD has been the most challenging experience of my life; without Dave to clear my path, I would have no chance of making it through! He is an excellent mentor who leads by example, and someone whom I hope to emulate later in my career.

Thanks Dave!

Liz White

Liz you are great at what you do!! You were very patient when you were training me. Thanks for be there for me!!

Dr Mixon

Dr Mixon is not only a kind, caring and compassionate doctor, he is also a great detective. The details just jump out at him and he is able to diagnosis those hard cases! I am privileged to be his nurse. Thanks for being kind and caring to your patients and co workers!

Julie Brannum

Julie goes above and beyond helping her patients and co workers when ever she can. She is the best!! Thanks Julie for being there for me.

Rachel McCord

Dr. McCord is such an inspiring person. I am truly lucky to be able to know her.

Mona Papes

Mona is my Master's adviser and she always goes above and beyond to help me with my research and classes. She constantly goes out of her way to make sure that I'm having the best graduate experience that I can. Her empathy and kindness has made this experience that much better. Thank you for all you do, Mona!

Renee D’Elia-Zunino

Renee goes out of her way to assist students who are struggling to find their way in her class. With her upper level classes, she is extremely helpful to all of her students and cares about their interests in addition to her class topics.

Salvatore DiMaria

Sal’s passion for Italy and its culture is amazing. I am in his Italian opera class and he goes above and beyond to make sure we are always engaged, that we know what’s going on, and that we are progressing with our knowledge of the language.

Charlie Parker

Thank you Mr. Parker for being so proactive in our program and striving to continually grow the program. Your effort to align our program with actively hiring companies shows how much you strive to prepare us for the future. You have built our program into what it is today and you have made the program very enjoyable. Your teaching method makes it easy to learn and a more enjoyable experience in the classroom.

Scottie McDaniel

Scottie set an awesome pace between production and room to explore. She always has time for us despite teaching other classes and taking care of her legitimate children. Best studio ever.

Rana Abudayyeh

Rana always goes above and beyond to see her students succeed and excel. She's devoted to her job and most of all, passionate about teaching design! Her approach to design is always the perfect mix of a liberating yet challenging experience. Her support is admired and so very appreciated. Much love to you Rana.

Salvatore Di Maria

Sal is an amazing teacher - he really focuses on what will improve a students enjoyment and learning in his classes. I've taken two of his upper level classes in Italian, and I've enjoyed both them immensely: he really knows what he's talking about.

Cindy Welch

Dr. Welch's expertise in her subject matter is matched only by her enthusiasm. Not only does she know and love what she's talking about, she is a skilled teacher and truly cares more about student learning outcomes than anything else.

David Butler

He's my master's thesis advisor, and he always gives me something new to think about!

Tyler Wall

Dr. Wall encourages everyone to question the systems around them and to practice reflective thought. Dr. Wall upholds high standards of open dialogue and creates a classroom environment which I look forward to being in every class. He has helped me to understand a lot about the criminal justice system as well as helped me to be more knowledgeable and reflective about important and current issues. Thank you for all that you do Dr. Wall!!
