Profile: Adrian Parr
"When you first meet Dean Adrian Parr, you feel like you’ve known her your whole life. Because she is so down to earth and welcoming, you forget for a minute that you’re talking to someone has traveled to all parts of the world conducting research as the UNESCO Water and Human Settlements chair. Or someone so fluent in Italian that she spent part of her graduate studies translating Italian works of philosophy into English. Or someone who has produced several films, written three books, and was director of the TAFT Research Center at the University of Cincinnati. But only for a minute because then you begin to witness her passion for the cultural, environmental, and political activism that has drawn Parr national and international recognition. She now joins the D-FW area as the Dean of the College of Architecture, Planning, and Public Affairs (CAPPA) at the University of Texas at Arlington."
