From 1997 through 2003 Karol Kulas served on the Landscape Architecture Accreditation Board (LAAB). The mission of the LAAB is to evaluate, advocate for, and advance the quality of education in landscape architectural programs. The LAAB develops and promulgates the accreditation standards, rules and procedures for conducting the accreditation process. The LAAB is the accrediting organization for landscape architectural programs. As such, the LAAB develops standards to objectively evaluate landscape architectural programs and judges whether a school's landscape architectural program is in compliance with the accreditation standards.
