Claudia Phillips, director of PhilaU’s Landscape Architecture Program, has been named a 2013 fellow of the American Society of Landscape Architects (ASLA) for her exceptional accomplishments in the field.
“It is an honor to be named a fellow of the American Society of Landscape Architects, the top professional organization in the U.S. for landscape architects,” she said. “Being recognized by the society for my commitment to service to the profession, academic accomplishments and community service is very rewarding and validates my dedication to sustainability through community outreach and service learning.”
Fellowship is among the highest honors the ASLA bestows on members and recognizes the contributions of these individuals and society based on their works, leadership and management, knowledge and service. Phillips has “consistently followed her dedication to service to the community and her students,” ASLA said.
Phillips and other 2013 fellows will be recognized at the group’s annual meeting in November. She is also a fellow of the Council of Educators in Landscape Architecture.
