Landscape Architecture is responsible for planning, designing and managing all aspects of site and landscape improvements for new construction and renovation of existing University facilities. Our staff is involved in the preparation of master, landuse and open space plans to assist in future development strategies for our campuses.
I hope our alumni will always insist upon retention of our precious islands of green and serenity - our most precious physical asset, transcending even classrooms, libraries, and laboratories in their ability to inspire students to dream long dreams of future usefulness and achievement - dreams that are an essential part of undergraduate college experience.”
