Following up on the success of 24 workshops since 1988, the 2015 University Professors’ Masonry Workshop provided professors with resources and background needed to effectively teach masonry design and construction classes at the university level. Leading professors, practitioners, and industry leaders reviewed the newest ideas in masonry education and research. The workshop featured separate tracks generally focused on architecture and engineering. In addition, numerous joint general sessions on masonry materials, design, and construction were presented. Attendees had the opportunity to lay brick at the Masonry Building Demonstration, and toured PSU’s Building Envelope Laboratory. A wealth of valuable information was presented to the attendees and the workshop provided helpful contacts with your colleagues and leading masonry professionals.
