College of Art & Design

As the Assistant Dean of Recruitment & Diversity, Dana is responsible for representing the College of Art & Design at in-state and out-of-state recruiting events. She coordinates College participation in University-wide recruiting events, and promotes LSU art & design programs with community-based organizations.

Dana worked at the LSU School of Architecture for 18 years before assuming her role as assistant dean. There she recruited students in historically underrepresented groups to the discipline of architecture. She is the founding advisor for the LSU chapter of the National Organization of Minority Architecture Students (NOMAS).

Her goal is to introduce students from historically underrepresented groups to architecture, landscape architecture, interior design and art, to increase diversity across the College.
