Welcome! We’re glad you’re here. Advancement team forms are designed to help our team assess, strategize, and support the work of the College of Built Environments. This form is for help with Communication, Marketing, and Event promotion. Every week, our team meets to assess inquiries and determine how they align with our – and the College’s – strategic advancement efforts. If we cannot support your inquiry, we are happy to connect you with other resources. For help and support with fundraising, annual philanthropy or gift processing, please contact us here. We will connect with you for an intake meeting once we have an understanding of the scope of your project.

Visual Resources provides image services to meet the teaching and research needs of the College of Built Environments community. Students and faculty are invited to access images and research assistance at the Image Library (Gould 330) or through the online image database. Visual Resources also oversees the Gould Hall Photo Lab (Gould 009) and the second-floor Gould Gallery exhibition space. Faculty members can reserve time in the Gould 009 photography studio for groups of students to photograph their work (e.g. models, furniture). While CBE students have regular access to this facility throughout the quarter, instructors are advised to plan dedicated sessions if a large group needs to shoot for a single project on a deadline.

Visual Resources:

  • Helps CBE faculty members to prepare visual materials for inclusion in academic publications. We can assist with image research, digitization of photographs, and the creation of files to match publishers’ specifications.
  • Faculty members teaching a CBE course may request digitization of print or film-based images for inclusion in the CBE Digital Image Database and in-class use.
    • Faculty members may request the digitization of images from books, journals, and other publications for the same purpose.
  • Curates Exhibitions and events in the Gould Gallery Space. To book the Gould Gallery space please fill out the VISUAL RESOURCES request in the form below.

**Note: Visual Resources does not provide event photography services but can recommend professionals working in this field.  Visual Resources does not record lectures taking place in current CBE courses for the purpose of student review. For this purpose, please take advantage of Panopto and Zoom recording options available to instructors via the Canvas course management platform.

If you need help with Zoom set up, please use our handy flowchart below to determine what type of Zoom support you need. If you need Zoom help or support, CBE Student Zoom Techs are trained and available to attend your Zoom classes and events and manage Zoom so you can focus on your presentation, or be there as on-demand Zoom support in case any difficulties arise.  Whatever your comfort level with Zoom, our techs can help from the basics of Zoom to some of the more advanced features and how to best integrate them into your classes or events. We even zprovide training for classes with TAs, GSAs, or graders assigned that would prefer to have those students available for Zoom.
