Jared Smith

Jared is a second-year master’s student in the Urban and Regional Planning program. From Madison, Wisconsin, he has always felt a connection to the local community, influencing his decision to attend the University of Wisconsin-Madison for his undergraduate degree where he studied landscape architecture. During his capstone, he found a special interest in social justice, urban design, and community master planning. Since graduating in 2020, he has worked as a landscape designer at Bishop Land Design in Boston, MA and Flad Architects in Madison, WI. Jared plans to further develop and incorporate my background in the design field with his current study of urban planning. Additionally, he plans to specialize in urban design, green infrastructure, and community development in his professional career.
