University Landscape Architect

Landscape planning has a rich history at the university. It provides the stewardship of the exterior campus environment and the creation of dignified surroundings for the academic, research and public service pursuits engaged in by the campus community.

The Office of Program Development retains a Senior Landscape Architect who is a certified professional in New Jersey to oversee all landscape planning projects. The development and implementation of a comprehensive Master Plan provides the direction for the management, preservation and enhancement of the campus landscape. All landscape planting and grounds improvement initiatives undertaken by various internal university administrative units, including the Facilities Operation and Services division Environmental Services & Grounds, University Housing and the Department of Transportation Services, as well as those by student groups and faculty researchers, are coordinated by the Senior Landscape Architect and staff.

The Landscape Planning staff works closely with all University Facilities & Capital Planning units. They review plans for all major capital projects for consistency and adherence to the Landscape Master Plan. This office also provides design services on landscape renovation projects, coordinates technical expertise and affirms policy recommendations.
