Beyond the runway
Professor and Chair of Consumer and Family Studies/Dietetics Nancy Rabolt was featured in a May 6 San Francisco Chronicle article about the seven fashion degree programs in the city and the women who chair them. "This past year, despite budget cuts, we added an elective for all programs in the department: Sustainability in Textile, Housing, and Food Industries. Sustainability is a major value and thrust of all our programs," Rabolt said. "There's a real sense of self coming through their (student) designs, less emphasis on fashion trends and more emphasis on a cultural or historical trends. Colors are more neutral and dark with an exaggeration of silhouette."
Associate Professor of Geography and Human Environmental Studies Jason Henderson commented on recent pedestrian deaths in the San Francisco for a May 6 San Francisco Examiner report. "There was massive internal self-policing from cyclists after the incident on Castro and Market (in which a bicyclist struck and killed a 71-year old pedestrian)," Henderson said. "But with drivers, there is a long history of lack of accountability. There is no Walk SF or Bike Coalition for drivers."
