The Council for Interior Design Accreditation (CIDA) has honored Scott Ageloff, director of PhilaU’s M.S. in Interior Architecture program, with this year’s Keith Hooks Volunteer Excellence Award.
The CIDA award goes annually to the organization’s most outstanding volunteer dedicated to the mission of providing excellence in the interior design profession by setting accreditation standards for academic institutions.
The CIDA board of directors cited Ageloff’s 16 years of volunteer leadership that have contributed to the quality of interior design education through his “thoughtful and reasoned perspectives in both the accreditation process and standards development.”
Ageloff’s CIDA service began in 1998 as an accreditation site visitor and he is now a member of the organization’s five-person Accreditation Council. He has served as a panelist at three CIDA accreditation workshops, and was recently appointed to the group’s accreditation commission subcommittee assigned to the Standard Development Project.
