Service Learning and Outreach Opportunities

The Landscape Architecture Program has a strong history of community engagement. Since 2018 our landscape architecture design studios have worked on 14 service-learning projects with regional communities, providing outreach to Idaho’s rural communities and urban centers. As students learn to collaborate in real-world situations, they have high-quality learning experiences and make meaningful contributions to the larger community.

Healing Garden and Memorial

In the Fall 2023, landscape architecture and architecture students organized and led several participatory events, including a university-wide charette where they explored with the community members design ideas for a place of remembrance representing the Vandal strong resilience in the university campus for all U of I students who have passed away while enrolled at the university.

Annual “PARK(ing) Day” workshop: converting parking spaces into ‘parklets’
