The Arturo Chavez – Page Southerland Page Foundation International Studies in Architecture Scholarship Endowment will go toward funding study abroad scholarships for Hines College students. “It is so gratifying when alumni reach the level of success that Art Chavez has and are able to enrich students’ experiences in perpetuity,” said dean of the Hines College, Patricia Oliver.
