NCASLA Exceeded Its Goal of Raising $40,000 For NC A&T'S Department of Landscape Architecture

eTradeWire News/10591980
RALEIGH, N.C. - eTradeWire -- The North Carolina Chapter of the American Society of Landscape Architects (NCASLA) announces the donation of more than $40,000 worth of equipment to North Carolina Agricultural and Technical State University's (NC A&T) Department of Landscape Architecture.

Members and supporters of NCASLA collectively raised nearly $22,000 and NCASLA additionally donated $2,500. ASLA also contributed to the fund by donating around 27,500 and then directly purchased the laptops for students in the NC A&T Landscape Architecture program.

NC A&T is a public, historically black (HBCU) research university in Greensboro, NC, and is one of only two HBCUs with a program in landscape architecture. This university has produced more Black landscape architects than any other accredited degree program in the nation and has been instrumental in advancing diversity within the profession.

The unforeseen circumstances brought on by COVID-19 and the pivot to distanced learning has drastically impacted NC A&T's Department of Landscape Architecture and its students. Rather than being able to complete assignments in the studio, students must now have personal computers that can support the required software programs to complete their degree.

The donation of the necessary laptops was made possible through the donations made by NCASLA, ASLA, the chapter's members, and its supporters. Students now have access to the tools they need to graduate.

NCASLA and ASLA will continue to provide support to NC A&T's Department of Landscape Architecture. Future fundraisers are planned to help the university purchase additional laptops, external hard drives, and specific programs students need to complete assignments.
