Connecting in Person and Building Communities

Landscape architecture students at the 2019 ASLA Conference and EXPO in San Diego

There are over 400 students registered for the conference with free registration. We need your help to provide free registration to the many more that are anxious to meet you in person. Your generosity enables students to attend that otherwise would not be able to.

“A sense of community and belonging is always something I have been passionate about. The national ASLA conference in Nashville will be a great expression of community and belonging that I want to be a part of. I hope to gain a perspective on landscape architecture that I haven’t seen in the classroom or my internship experience. In addition to some practical knowledge gained, I want to create valuable connections with fellow students, professionals, and others that would help further my professional relationships. ” - Benjamin Smail, North Dakota State University, '23

“Building community in the era of a global pandemic has proven more difficult than I anticipated. The thing I hope to gain most from attending the 2021 ASLA Conference is a sense of community among fellow students and young professionals in landscape architecture. I imagine that volunteering some time to assist conference organizers behind the scenes will facilitate those happenstance interactions that are so difficult to replicate virtually, and remain memorable for years to come. ” - Brian Vaughn, North Carolina State University, '23

“Being in the landscape architecture community, we are given many opportunities to explore the possibilities and potential of our field. The conference is the perfect setting to discuss such things and begin to implement plans that directs landscape architecture in an inclusive direction. I am most interested to learn how as designers we can create a sense of community again after being isolated from one another for so long.” - Morgan Hannan, Thomas Jefferson University, '23

The ASLA Fund’s goal is to make sure as many students as possible are able to experience the spirit of the profession during the Conference. We need your help to make this happen. Please consider making a donation to positively impact the lives of landscape architecture students.
