Ming-Han Li overseas four professional programs — construction management, interior design, landscape architecture, and urban and regional planning — a doctoral program, and the National Charrette Institute, which is an outreach and engagement unit.

Interdisciplinary background is Li’s unique strength. He is a professional landscape architect, certified planner of the American Institute of Certified Planners, and professional engineer. Serving the Council of Educators in Landscape Architecture has been Li’s career highlight, including president, president-elect, past president, vice president for research, second vice president, and track chair. Currently, he is a member of the Landscape and Environmental Design Committee under Transportation Research Board of the National Academies.

Li’s research and practical experience covers stormwater management, low impact development, and watershed planning and management. His teaching encompasses built environment, sustainable water management, low impact development, and landscape architecture construction with emphasis on experiential learning.

In 2017, Li was named as a top 25 Most Admired Educators by DesignIntelligence and was inducted to the Academy of Fellows by CELA. Because of his contribution to knowledge discovery, Li was inducted to the Council of Fellows by the American Society of Landscape Architects in 2019. Li is one of the five fellows of Michigan State’s cohort for the 2022-23 Big Ten Academic Alliance Academic Leadership Program.

Li holds a Bachelor of Science in agricultural engineering from the National Taiwan University and a Master of Science in civil engineering from the University of Texas at Austin. He also holds a Master of Landscape Architecture and doctorate in urban and regional science from Texas A&M University.
