This Symposium honored Professor David Rice, who is retiring in June after 31 years as an esteemed member of our faculty. Professor Rice has been teaching Team Design for the last twenty years. In that time he has shepherded our students through the design process as they have conceptualized, designed, constructed and delivered devices to individuals with disabilities in the New Orleans community. Former students and colleagues who are actively involved in the design process and design education spoke at the Symposium.
