Academic shortlisted for International Award

12 Feb 2021 2:45PM

The University is proud to announce that the founder of the department of Architecture and Architect Dr Liana Psarologaki has been shortlisted for an international award celebrating women’s achievement.

Dr Psarologaki is one of only four finalists for the second Greek International Women Award in the Design category for her personal and professional achievements in Architecture education in the UK, at the University of Suffolk and the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA).

Last year, Dr Psarologaki was elected as the Chair of Education for RIBA East Region and as part of this role she is leading education initiatives and projects supporting 1,800 RIBA members, 500 students, five Schools of Architecture and 250 practices across Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire, Essex, Hertfordshire, Suffolk and Norfolk.

Dr Psarologaki said of the shortlisting “I believe very much in celebrating opportunities and accomplishments of women, particularly in traditionally male dominated sectors, and in highlighting success beyond one’s home country. As an advocate of equality and diversity in Architecture, and a citizen of the world, this occasion makes me really proud.”

Professor Alistair Mathie, Dean of the School of Engineering, Arts, Science and Technology,  said “This is an important moment to celebrate equality and diversity, which lie at the heart of what we do at the University of Suffolk. I am delighted Liana has been shortlisted and wish her well with the awards.”

It is now down to a public vote to shape the winners’ results.

Voting closes on 1 March 2021. The winners of the Awards will be announced on 11 April via a online ceremony.
