Landscaping and Grounds mission is to provide a functional, safe and beautiful campus which supports Elon’s academic mission and enhances our national image of excellence.
At Elon University, the most frequent comment made by visitors is in praise of our beautiful campus, and we work diligently to keep it that way. In fact, the campus visit is considered the most important recruiting strategy in higher education today by many authorities. Therefore, it is not only the responsibility of the Landscaping and Grounds department to maintain this beautiful campus, but to communicate Elon University’s standards of excellence to visitors and to a national audience. To this end, the Elon University Botanical Garden has been established to provide an educational, environmental and aesthetic resource to benefit Elon University and the public.
