Yuill, Charles

Associate Professor of Landscape Architecture

Charlie Yuill is the program coordinator for landscape architecture. He earned his bachelor of science degree in landscape architecture from The Pennsylvania State University and his master in landscape architecture from the University of Massachusetts. Charlie's current environmental planning interests focus primarily in community planning, design and engagement. His emphasis is on public participation utilizing traditional engagement tools such as charrettes, meetings, and surveys with emerging methods utilizing computer simulations, visualizations and in-the-field visitor/user response measurement observation and devices. Other major areas of practice and research are landscape assessment and characterization, historic/cultural resource management, and environmental restoration.
