Spotted by Donald Pittenger in the University of Washington alumni magazine:
Effective Jan 1, the UW College of Architecture and Urban Planning will be renamed College of Built Environments [bold in original]. The Board of Regents approved the name change on Sept. 18. Dean Daniel S. Friedman says that the college is increasingly focused on sustainable practices and environmental quality, and that the new name is a way of making that official. “‘College of Built Environments’ better reflects our core responsibility to 21st century challenges — urbanization, climate change and livable communities,” Friedman says.
I’m waiting for some enterprising J-school to rename itself “College of Bullshit Propagation.”
