Dean named fellow at the American Society of Landscape Architects

Daniel Nadenicek, dean of the College of Environment and Design, has been granted Fellow status at the American Society of Landscape Architects. This is the organization’s highest honor and reflects a lifetime achievement in the general category of knowledge—for his work expanding educational programs, scholarly research, teaching, administration and service.

Nadenicek’s prolific writings include scores of peer-reviewed and invited papers as well as chapters in scholarly publications. He has served on the UGA Press editorial board, helped develop a new landscape design book series and currently edits Critical Perspectives in the History of Environmental Design while co-editing Landscape Journal.

His academic career, which includes years at Penn State, Clemson and UGA, encompasses more than 30 separate courses and 4,000 students. He has served on committees for numerous master’s students and doctoral candidates, and he will be overseeing the new doctoral degree program in environmental design and planning at UGA.

His academic career also has included more than 30 service-learning projects.

The designation of Fellow is conferred on individuals in recognition of exceptional accomplishments over a sustained period of time.

Nadenicek will be recognized at the 2016 ASLA annual meeting in New Orleans this fall.
