School of Landscape Architecture and Planning

The University of Florida College of Design, Construction and Planning is home to the School of Landscape Architecture and Planning, which benefits from the collaborative teaching, research, and service in the Departments of Landscape Architecture and Urban and Regional Planning.

The School’s joint faculty base consists of 18 permanent and 6 adjunct faculty and a student body in excess of 200 drawn from the accredited Bachelor of Landscape Architecture program, accredited master’s degrees in Landscape Architecture and Urban and Regional Planning and a Ph.D. program supporting both disciplines.
The School of Landscape Architecture and Planning supports five research centers – Geoplan Center, the Center for Building Better Communities, the Center for Health and the Built Environment, the Center for International Design and Planning, and the Center for Landscape Conservation Planning – that conduct funded research averaging approximately $2 million annually.

The UF Board of Trustees authorized the new school in June 2008 and the UF Faculty Senate approved the new school name in October 2009. The school structure will foster more formalized synergies in research, teaching and service, allowing the accredited professional programs in landscape architecture and urban and regional planning to be sustained and enhanced, while also allowing the two departments to maintain their distinctive identities.
