2004 The Jot D. Carpenter Teaching Medal Recipient
Marvin I. Adleman, FASLA

The Jot D. Carpenter Teaching Medal  recognizes an individual who has made a sustained and significant contribution to landscape architecture education.

Marvin I. Adleman, FASLA, a professor at Cornell University, will receive the Jot D. Carpenter Medal for his sustained and significant contributions to landscape architecture education.  This medal honors the late Jot D. Carpenter for his exceptional leadership in academia.  Appropriately enough, Jot D. Carpenter greatly influenced Professor Adleman's decision to join the Cornell faculty in 1972 as head of the landscape architecture program.  During his 32-year career at the school, Adleman built a department with a talented and diverse faculty together with the space and facilities that made it one of the foremost undergraduate and graduate programs in the nation.  Having taught three-quarters of the alumnae of the program, he continues to carry one of the largest teaching loads in the department and advises many undergraduate and graduate students each year.
