Milnes previously served as president of the organization, which promotes art and design in higher education. Along with his role at UNT, Milnes is a consultant and evaluator for art and design programs around the world. He recently made a consultation with Kuwait University in Kuwait City, Kuwait, his 50th visit to a campus.
Milnes says that his being named a fellow shows that UNT continues to have a voice and leadership role in the evolution of art and design programs.
"For our students and faculty, it means that we have people engaged in this dialogue and bringing the resources the dialogue develops back to the campus to help our own programs," he says.
