The LA Innovation Fund was established through the Landscape Architecture Alumni & Advisory Board (LAAAB) with an initial gift from Robert ‘Bob’ Chipman (’81). The fund supports MSU Landscape Architecture students’ scholarly development through experiential learning opportunities such as attending state and national landscape architecture conferences, site visits, field trips, hosting professional lecture and supporting technology advancements to ensure that students are being prepared for professional practice by staying at the forefront of the current field.
