Racial In_Justice in Landscape Architecture Curricula
Monday, July 20, 2020
2:00–3:00 p.m. (Eastern)

Hosted by the ASLA Committee on Education

Join ASLA for two short presentations by fellow educators to hear their thoughts on taking steps toward racial justice and equity in academia. The presentations will be followed by break-out sessions to begin difficult conversations about race, discuss tangible actions, and share resources. Break-out groups will be facilitated by members of ASLA’s Committee on Education (COE). Feedback from the break-out groups will be incorporated in the COE’s Diversity and Racism Subcommittee action plans.

Higher Education Reflections and Planning for Fall 2020
Thursday, July 23, 2020

Hosted by the Education & Practice PPN

Join ASLA for a panel discussion and Q&A with educators and administrators from across the country reflecting on spring semester challenges and successes while looking ahead to fall 2020.
