The Professional Advisory Council (PAC) is a volunteer group of practicing landscape architects, formed to support the Department's teaching, outreach and fundraising efforts.
The PAC participates in various departmental events, serves as a sounding board for the Chair, and provides valuable input to the Department on professional issues, trends and opportunities as they relate to the teaching of landscape architecture. In doing so, it connects the Department with the professional community, grounds the program in actual practice, and expands the capacity of the Department at a time when University resources are limited.
