President Floyd was instrumental in landing the Department of Apparel, Merchandising, Design and Textiles on the radar screen to move into an improved space. He was involved in discussions about several location options, and made the original verbal commitment to AMDT that they would indeed be moved.
The budget crisis altered the original plan, and CAHNRS stepped up in partnership with the provost and the president to fund their transition into the Johnson Hall Annex.
I consider his commitment to initiating the project to be instrumental in the eventual move. Without his support, we couldn’t have made it happen.
