​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Why LAAB/ASLA Accreditation?​

The BLA Program is currently seeking LAAB​ (Landscape Architecture Accreditation Board) program​ accreditation by ASLA​ (American Association of Landscape Architecture). The LAAB accreditation is based on 7 specific standards. To earn accreditation a program must meet minimum requirements for accreditation and meet all 7 standards.​

Accreditation is a non-governmental, voluntary system of self-regulation. Its core is the concept of self-evaluation. The Landscape Architectural Accreditation Board (LAAB) accreditation process evaluates each program on the basis of its stated objectives and compliance to externally mandated minimum standards. ​​

Accreditation matters! 

Accreditation encourages higher education programs and institutions that are commited to quality and continuously improving performance.​
