Mission Statement:

Jefferson’s Landscape Architecture Program has a mission of sustainable urban design through experiential learning projects. Most design studio projects partner with community groups, schools, or governmental organizations to address "real" environmental and community issues.   As a result, students have positively impacted many neighborhoods in the City of Philadelphia. For example, the student work has attracted attention from the Philadelphia Planning commission’s plans for the neighborhood of West Park in West Philadelphia. The Ridge Allegheny Hunting Park Civic Association plans to implement one of the student’s proposed parks and a developer is interested in pursuing conceptual ideas for a community center for a vacant lot. The students also have the opportunity to apply for grants with faculty. One such grant was for art installations on Philadelphia’s many vacant lots.
