“A desk is a dangerous place from which to watch the world.” — John le Carré (1931-), British novelist who wrote “The Spy Who Came in from the Cold” At right: “Life Boats: Boats About Life” is a series of eight boats, measuring about 6 feet long and suspended above the multi-storied open space inside the College of Design, Architecture, Art, and Planning — sculptures by the late Patricia Renick, a nationally known sculptor, former chair of UC’s fine arts program and fac-ulty member from 1969-2000. “Now her legacy will continue to inspire future students,” says Dean Robert Probst. The instal-lation was a gift from Renick’s partner Laura Chapman. On the cover: UC students trav-eling abroad often attract local children, like this lad who had fun with members of the UC chapter of Engineers Without Borders. The students were working on a water project in Nyambogo, Tanzania, with the Village Life Outreach Project, founded by Chris Lewis, MD ’00, adjunct medical professor, to provide long-term, healthy solu-tions that villagers can sustain. Opposite page: All wrapped up, UC student David Watkins was ready for a camel ride in the Sahara Desert. Studying abroad for the UC Honors Program in February 2011, he was living in Old Medina, part of Casablanca in Morocco, with a “rather impoverished” host family. A few weeks earlier, he had been evacuated from Egypt with 11 other students and a program director when pro-tests escalated there. Read about another student’s adventure working for the U.S. State Department in Egypt on page 8.
