Karen Lu, president of the American Institute of Architects Minnesota, and Mary-Margaret Zindren, Executive Vice President pledged that a way to move forward is “Instead of architects assuming we know what is right and jumping in to assert our experience, expertise and good intentions, we need to step back, listen and be ready to learn, unlearn, and adapt.” Diversifying students and faculty in architecture and design programs is imperative – the numbers reveal the numerous opportunities that lie ahead as 2016 data point to Black/African American students being 5 percent and American Indian/Alaskan and Native Hawaiian /Pacific Islander had numbers so small, they rounded to zero percent. Decolonizing the curriculum must also be part of efforts to diversify perspectives as are outreach engagements such as Locus Architecture’s Biloxi.
