Community Service Learning Project with PAL Boxing
Students from NYIT's School of Architecture and Design met with Joe Higgins, Director of PAL Boxing in Freeport, NY, on March 7 to discuss ideas for the renovation and expansion of his existing training facility in Northeast Park. The non-profit PAL Boxing provides an after school athletic and academic program for Freeport teens, and has produced several Golden Gloves champions and Olympic contenders. Working in teams of three, students will develop designs for the project, with a competition to decide the winning scheme. The students, together with adjunct professors Giovanni Santamaria and Janet Fink, have volunteered for this community service learning project

Collaborative Home Modification Project
The Home Modification is a cross-disciplinary collaborative project between undergraduate Interior Design students and graduate Occupational Therapy students. Residents, of homes and facilities, with disabilities and alternate physical needs are the front-line clients of innovative, accessible design.
It is a design approach that imbues sensitivity and superb problem solving skills to burgeoning interior designers who are guided by their occupational therapy counterpart's contributions to the nature and trajectory of the "real" client's disease. They are encouraged to push the limits of conventional design solutions; where seemingly impossible hurdles are transformed into conceptual challenges and ultimately esthetically superior, functionally adaptive interior design.
