APDesign graduates recognized for achievements in APDPro

Submitted by Thom Jackson

Five graduates in the College of Architecture, Planning & Design at Kansas State University received APDPro certification by completing all five years of requirements for APDPro, the college's professional development program.

The following students achieved certification in APDPro during the 2022-2023 academic year:

Jordan Cutsinger, fifth-year student in industrial design, El Dorado; Leandra Fischer, fifth-year student in architecture, McLouth; Chloe Gillespie, fifth-year student in landscape architecture, Kearney, Missouri; Amber Pryor, fifth-year student in architecture, St. Paul, Missouri; and Bridget Snow, fifth-year student in regional & community planning, Omaha, Nebraska.

Nearly 500 APDesign students participated in APDPro during the 2022-2023 academic year.

The mission of APDPro is to enrich students' experience in APDesign and provide a competitive advantage as they transition to the workplace. The programs offered through APDPro help students develop the career skills employers are looking for via workshops; lectures; seminars; professional mentoring; diversity, equity, inclusion and belonging efforts; and networking opportunities. Students receive a notation on their transcript for each year they complete the program requirements and become certified in APDPro if they complete the requirements for all five years of the program.
