Ted Landsmark is a man of many “ands” — he is the director of the Myra Kraft Open Classroom and the Kitty and Michael Dukakis Center for Urban and Regional Policy, a Boston Development and Planning Agency board member and former president of the Boston Architectural College. He has a bachelor’s, a master’s and a law degree from Yale, a Ph.D. from Boston College and has taught across the disciplines of public policy, city planning and African American culture.

His varied interests shine on the walls of his home office, which display his collection of banjos, art and historical maps: He’s also on the board of the Leventhal Map & Education Center at the Boston Public Library.

“It’s difficult to wrap your head around the human that is Ted Landsmark, because he is a scholar in the truest sense of the word, and a good human in the truest sense of the words,” said Rebecca Riccio, Director of the Social Impact Lab. “He has such a vast array of academic areas of expertise.”
