Candidates who combine teaching and research or teaching and practice through design-research, design experimentation, engagement projects, or other strategies are encouraged to apply. The selection of the Hyde Chair is based on the applicant’s potential for exposing our College to new directions in design as demonstrated in a portfolio of original work in design, design research, and/or design education.
