Speaker Series

The Speaker Series

The LAEP Speaker Series began in 2007 by Lindsay Ex, a 2010 MLA graduate and has continued to grow stronger each year as new graduate students with the support of a faculty member have taken over.  The Speakers Series is a time for professionals and experts related to the landscape architecture field to come and present award winning or noteworthy projects to the students.  The speaker series occurs every other Friday at 4:30-5:30pm in the Fine Arts-Visual building  in the Laval Morris Lecture Hall (room 150).

The Landscape Architecture & Environmental Planning Department would like to extend a thank you to all of our guest speakers that have participated so far and encourage other professionals to continue to participate.  If you are interested in becoming one of our guest speakers, please contact Dr. Shujuan Li at shujuan.li@usu.edu or graduate students Wayne Honaker, Shuolei Chen, and Logan Oates.
