Doug Burleson Retires

Associate Professor Doug Burleson has retired from the architecture program faculty this May. Prof. Burleson joined the APLA faculty in 1986, and the span of his teaching roles has covered a broad spectrum of studio year-levels and lecture topics. In addition to teaching in the professional curriculum, Prof. Burleson has taught the Architecture Appreciation course to non-architecture majors for the past six years. In reflecting on Prof. Burleson’s twenty-seven year career, APLA School Head David Hinson noted that Prof. Burleson had served the program and the university with distinction, adding, “The Doug Burleson I have come to know is a faculty member deeply committed to teaching. He has a passion for harnessing the practical, intellectual, spiritual, and emotional facets of the way we think about design into the goal of creating work that matters.”
