John F. (Jack) Crowley III, ASLA, professor and former dean with the College of Environment and Design at the University of Georgia, and founder and president of Urbantech in Athens, Georgia, was nominated by the Georgia ASLA Chapter for his overall impact on the profession of landscape architecture. His leadership at the university from 1996 to 2006 reinvigorated and expanded its design-related academic programs, including the landscape architecture program, and emphasized student immersion in real-world experiences. He has evaluated programs at other universities for the Landscape Architectural Accreditation Board and is currently promoting urban design and development in Tulsa, Oklahoma, where a visionary plan that he first created for the downtown almost 30 years ago is now being implemented. He earned his bachelor of arts in history/art history in 1970, his master of regional and city planning degree in 1973, and his doctorate in urban geography (hydrology) in 1976, all from the University of Oklahoma.
