Professor John Mellor, AIA ’95 and ’10 has been recognized as one of America’s Most Admired Educators by DesignIntelligence.

This list of education role models are selected by DesignIntelligence staff with extensive input from thousands of design professionals, academic department heads, and students. Educators and administrators from the disciplines of architecture, interior design, and landscape architecture are considered for inclusion.

DesignIntelligence describes John as “an incredible mentor, one who is dedicated to engaging his students and cultivating a love for drafting and the practice of architecture” noting that he is “extremely committed to ensuring students understand the most important aspects of professional practice, even if they are not as glamorous as design.”

This honor comes following John’s selection by student groups as the School’s 2016-2017 Educator of the Year.
