Andrew Sargeant
Cleveland Neighborhood Progress


“The 20th anniversary of the Rose Fellowship comes at a fortuitous time. In the midst of a global pandemic and neo-civil rights movement, design professionals have a tremendous opportunity. We must realign and retool in order to better serve disenfranchised communities. Cities, funders, and community developers should hold us to high standards for community engagement and co-creation of their spaces. Our work in these communities should help foster and achieve balanced dynamics for growth, health, and opportunity. I plan to effectively lead change with design and become integrated with the community for a just and more vibrant city of Cleveland.” 
It’s difficult to know what the new normal will look like post-pandemic, but it’s apparent that COVID-19 has disproportionately affected lower-income communities. Andrew will be leveraging his prowess with design technology to help Cleveland Neighborhood Progress (CNP) build new capacity, allowing them to strengthen their efforts in working with communities during this unprecedented time. 
Through his fellowship, Andrew hopes to support CNP in developing the vision and capacity to attract and cultivate design leadership within inland cities. He looks forward to learning from not only his colleagues, but also from people of the city about how landscape architecture can affect change in the future. 
Andrew received his bachelor’s degree in Landscape Architecture from Temple University. He was previously awarded the Fellowship for Innovation and Leadership from the Landscape Architecture Foundation and named an Olmsted Scholar by Temple University.
