Category 4

Independent analysis and opinion by DesignIntelligence editors and Greenway Group analysts of overall campus environment for learning, technology resources, opportunities for integrated learning, skills assessment, and regional preference derived from surveys.

Category 5

DesignIntelligence considers Landscape Architecture Accreditation Board accreditation to be a minimum standard for world-class status. LAAB analysis provides for a single standard for both undergraduate and graduate programs, so a standard score was used for each program.
