There are many ways to help support the Department of Landscape Architecture at Illinois. Any size monetary gift, an offer of volunteer efforts, professional mentorship of students and sponsorship of internships, hosting firm tours, and participation in portfolio reviews and our annual career fair: all of these increase the value of the Illinois experience for our students. Every year, thanks to the generosity of donors, we are able to award scholarships, fellowships, and research grants; fund key programming such as lectures, field trips, workshops, charrettes, and symposia; and keep our teaching and learning resources on the front line of excellence. In other words, your gifts have immediate and consequential impacts by helping us grow the scope of education at Illinois in significant and meaningful ways. Through your support, we are able to attract and retain the best students and academic staff, provide exceptional opportunities and resources for teaching and learning, and move forward in strength, building on more than a century of leadership in design education.
