Professor von Maur’s educational background is a good match for the focus and mission of the School of Architecture at Andrews University. During her time at Notre Dame, she was chosen as a teaching assistant for design studios and a construction technology course; receiving the one teaching award that was given to the graduate students.
Her professional experience includes work for both a construction management company and an architecture firm, where she developed abilities in design, drawing and construction. In 2007 she designed and oversaw the complex renovation of several rooms of her 1909 house.
Since she began teaching, Professor von Maur has stayed active in design at various levels. She was involved in the schematic design and design development of the new Buller Hall located on Andrews’ main quad. She was also involved in the design of the new signage on campus, and is currently in the process of designing various new signs that are of a more substantial nature. Within the School of Architecture, She has led many seminars and independent study courses that focus on portfolio design.
