Housed within WVU’s Davis College of Agriculture, Natural Resources and Design, it is the only accredited landscape architecture program in the state of West Virginia. In recent years the program has been recognized as one of the best in the nation, ranking as high as ninth by the Design Futures Council in 2009.
Conducted by the Landscape Architectural Accreditation Board, an independent committee created by the ASLA, the accreditation process included an intensive self-evaluation by the WVU program and an on-campus visit and evaluation by a team of landscape architecture academicians, practicing landscape architecture professionals, and administrators from another university.
“The Davis College community is proud of this program, and I’d like to personally salute the talented students and the dedicated faculty,” said Rudolph Almasy, interim dean of the college.
The team spent three days on campus last April meeting with landscape architecture faculty, staff and students, as well as various WVU officials.
