The Robert Reich School of Landscape Architecture is committed to expanding excellence in landscape architectural education through theory and practice, innovation, critical thinking, and iterative making rooted in the context of the American South.
The mission of the Robert Reich School of Landscape Architecture is to prepare our students to be designers, leaders in landscape architecture, and responsible global citizens.
The mission of the graduate program at Robert Reich School of Landscape Architecture is to explore and question the boundaries of the discipline through research, critical thinking, and making. We emphasize regional water issues and culture through a global perspective.
WHY STUDY AT RRSLA?
Through design thinking and making, we explore solutions in a place that suffers from decades of raw and exposed social justice issues exasperated by:
- historic knowledge and understanding
- politics and policies’ impacts on people
- climate change/sea level rise and associated loss of land and culture
While these prevalent issues are our lab during an education at RRSLA, students will be immersed in an experience here that they can apply anywhere in the world.
