09/07/18 Doug Noble Named One of DI's Most Admired Educators

 

Doug Noble, the School's Master of Building Science program director, has been named one of DesignIntelligence's "Top 25 Most Admired Educators in Architecture, Interiors, and Landscape Architecture" for 2018-2019. Noble was also named one of DI's most admired educators in 2015 and 2010 (under the Architect Magazine banner).


DesignIntelligence writes, “Doug has poured himself out toward the betterment of not just his students but everyone he can possibly influence in the community.”


Every year, DesignIntelligence honors excellence in education and education administration by recognizing 25 outstanding professionals in these fields. Selections are made by DesignIntelligence staff with input from thousands of design professionals, academic department heads and students. DI has published America’s Best Architecture and Design Schools annually since 2000. The Design Futures Council (DFC), a global network of design community professionals, takes an active role in framing the content of DI publications, serving as advisors and authors.


"I am especially honored to have been named to the 2019 DesignIntelligence 'Most Admired Educators' list both because of the caliber of the other people that have been named and because it represents input from thousands of people," said Noble. "I truly love my career helping to educate the next generations of professionals in architecture (and all of the related fields that our graduates choose). I am especially enthusiastic about the powerful and broad links that the USC School of Architecture maintains with the professions. While intended as a recognition of my efforts as an educator, this award is also partially a recognition of my efforts to help bridge the academy and the profession through the NotLY 'Not Licensed Yet' exam-preparation programs that were created by Karen M. Kensek and me over a decade ago and for our work in establishing the Facade Tectonics Institute. Facade Tectonics has grown to international stature, and has helped position USC as a leader in building enclosure science and technology."
