The Landscape Architecture Foundation (LAF) invites you to complete a survey developed through LAF's Education Committee, titled “Understanding the Opportunities and Challenges for Landscape Architecture Faculty Hire, Retention, Promotion, and Success in Higher Education.”
The survey seeks to capture the experiences of landscape architecture educators and/or practitioners who currently serve, have served, or have applied to serve in teaching positions in landscape architecture programs in the US. The survey has been reviewed and approved by Virginia Tech's Human Research Protection Program (HRPP/IRB) for research on human subjects, (IRB#21-628).
Your participation in the survey is voluntary and all responses will be anonymous. The survey will take approximately 15-20 minutes to complete. At the end of the survey, you will be asked if you are interested in participating in a follow-up interview, as part of the second phase of this research project.
As the expert on your own experiences, LAF wants to hear from you! This work will serve as a significant scholarly contribution to the field of landscape architecture for recruitment, hiring, and retention practices for faculty.
