Hyde Chair of Excellence

Hyde Chair of Excellence

The Hyde Chair of Excellence visiting faculty position honors the College’s collaborative spirit and genuine interest in student learning and the pursuit of academic success.

Established in 1986, the Hyde Chair of Excellence allows the College of Architecture to attract visiting faculty of national and international distinction. The Hyde Chair of Excellence position is available to designers, architects, and educators from a variety of backgrounds with outstanding and unique credentials. The visiting Hyde Chair attracts emerging voices in design from both practice and teaching. Through this endowment, renowned scholars and practitioners are invited to spend a semester or more in residence at the College directing a design studio, conducting a

graduate level seminar, and presenting a public lecture. The Hyde Chair also participates in various College activities and events, including studio reviews, and contributes to the general academic and design-research culture of the College. The Hyde Chair of Excellence was made possible by the generosity of Mrs. Flora Hyde in honor of the memory of her late husband, A. Leicester Hyde. Mr. Hyde was a 1925 graduate of Architecture and Engineering.
