LAAB/ASLA Accreditation

​LDEM announced in December 2019 the successful and timely submission of the SER (Self Evaluation Report) to LAAB (Landscape Architectural Accreditation Board) by the LDEM Accreditation Team.













The LDEM department has recently received approval for a virtual accreditation visit of its undergraduate Landscape Architecture program (BLA). This visit is replacing the face to face visit which was planned for last Spring 2019/2020​ and which was postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic crisis. The upcoming virtual visit is planned for March 2021. If successful, the BLA program will receive initial accreditation and will be the first program to receive LAAB/ASLA accreditation outside the USA. 

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

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

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