Abstract/Contents:"Turfgrass dominated managed urban landscapes (e.g., parks, yards) are a central component of urban ecosystems in Minnesota, the United States, and around the world. These landscapes can require a significant amount of labor, management, and research work in order to maximize ecosystem services. Despite the importance of these landscapes and the variety of associated careers available, there remains a significant deficit of workers as well as students interested in these critical landscapes, which is only projected to grow in the future. One area which remains understudied is how often managed urban landscape curricula are even present in undergraduate majors. The current study utilized a systematic examination of higher education institutions in the state of Minnesota to assess the state of managed urban landscape curricula (MULC) across multiple disciplines. Overall, managed urban landscape curricula was rare, making up an estimated 0.4% out of all courses reviewed (~51,000). However, there are significant opportunities to expand the reach of MULC into a broad range of disciplines that could help expose a greater number of undergraduate students to these critical landscapes and foster an interest in careers related to them."
