Research & Outreach

Faculty and students engage in research and community outreach in a variety of ways. Individual faculty members are engaged in focused research that supports the department’s commitment to sustainability, resilient communities and an appreciation for cultural landscapes. Faculty sponsored projects support graduate students, who have a chance to develop their own research papers and presentations as part of their Master’s Project work. View our faculty profiles for information about specific research projects.

Outreach projects include service-learning studio projects as well as independent outreach work within the communities of Idaho and the surrounding region. In the past few years, U of I Landscape Architecture students and faculty have worked with the National Park Service and local ASLA chapter members, as well as other local professionals, to provide technical assistance to several communities in Idaho and in the Spokane-Coeur d’Alene metropolitan area. We also engage in events with local schools and grass roots organizations to promote healthier, more sustainable and more livable communities.
