Roger Williams University’s May 2012 Commencement included the unveiling of a plaque commemorating the School of Architecture, Art and Historic Preservation’s Graduating Class of 2012 in the School’s “Alumni Circle”, located in the building’s main Atrium. The Alumni Circle includes commemorative plaques including the names of all graduates in Architecture, Historic Preservation, Visual Arts Studies and Art and Architectural History, from 1985 forward, since the founding of the Architecture Program. Each year now at the conclusion of the main university commencement ceremony, a special school-based ceremony is held in the SAAHP Alumni Circle. Names of the graduates for each year are etched via laser cutter into a plaque, and added to the circle of names, as a kind of living memorial that continues to expand over the years. The Alumni Circle was dedicated at Roger Williams University’s Alumni Weekend in June 2011, in a ceremony that included alumni, faculty, deans and President Donald Farish.
