Design Build Manager Recognized by Service Learning Teaching Award

On Wednesday, Emilie Taylor Welty, Design/Build Manager and Interim Director of Small Center, was presented with the 2017 Barbara E. Moely Service Learning Teaching Award by Tulane’s Center for Public Service.

Every year, the Center for Public Service recognizes one professor who embraces Dr. Moely’s exceptional dedication to bringing classrooms to life though engaged partnerships. This award is a reflection of Dr. Moely’s decades-long devotion of bridging the university-community divide by training students across disciplines to become compassionate and culturally competent leaders.

A leader in the Design/Build field, Emilie has been with Small Center since the Center’s founding in 2005 and focuses on teaching students how to be better designers, makers, and citizens. Her most recent projects with Small Center include being Design Lead for the Groundworks New Orleans Solar Charging Bench (Summer 2017), Big Class Writers’ Room (Spring 2017), and Community Book Center Renovation (Spring 2016), and Project Manager for the Edible Schoolyard Outdoor Classroom (Fall 2016).
