Call For Comment: LAAB Accreditation Standards Revision

Pursuant to the Landscape Architectural Accreditation Board (LAAB) Accreditation Procedures, LAAB is tasked with conducting ongoing and comprehensive reviews of its accreditation standards to verify they adequately evaluate educational quality and are relevant to the educational needs of landscape architecture students.

Every five years, LAAB conducts long-term reviews to determine if the current standards, when viewed as a whole and individually, are adequate to assess the quality of landscape architecture education programs and pertinent to the education and training needs of students. LAAB last approved revisions to the standards in 2016 as part of its periodic review.

Starting November 1, LAAB will host a public comment review period for the 2016 LAAB Accreditation Standards. Interested individuals should submit comments and revisions of the 2016 LAAB Accreditation Standards on or before December 15.


LAAB Annual Report Summaries

Programs accredited by LAAB are required to submit reports each year providing information about the program's students, graduates, budgets, and faculty among other items. This information allows LAAB to monitor significant changes and compliance with accreditation standards. Additionally, aggregate data from the reports is used to track trends in landscape architecture education and to communicate those trends with our communities of interest. Below are the Annual Report Summaries comprised by LAAB. Also, a summary sheet is provided to show the data trends over multiple years.
