Landscape Architecture Mentor Program
In April 2011, the ASLA Public Practice Advisory Committee posted a note in LAND E-News "Wanted: Examples of Landscape Architecture Mentor Programs." The PPAC goal was to showcase and search for shining examples of Mentor Programs that pair practitioners with students or provide excellent networking opportunities between seasoned and emerging professionals. As a result of the outreach effort, a white paper and matrix are now available with some excellent models for Mentor Programs that involve ASLA chapters, universities, private firms, and local, state, and federal agencies. As a living document, the next action is to include other Mentor Programs that have had great success or are just getting started and are looking for some guidance. Our committee request to each state is to provide us with feedback and let us know how and what your LA Mentor Program is doing. Thank you for adding your successes to this national effort.
