Landsmark to be president emeritus of architectural college

Boston Architectural College’s trustees on Monday said that Theodore Landsmark will become president emeritus of the school, which he led for the last 17 years, ending a two-week standoff over terms of his departure.

The board voted last month to dismiss Landsmark, a move that was posted on the school’s website, taking the mayor’s office by surprise. Landsmark is the first nominee to the Boston Redevelopment Authority board by Mayor Martin J. Walsh, who has pledged to overhaul the organization.

Landsmark’s nomination had been put on hold until negotiations over his departure from the college ended.

A statement on the college’s website said Landsmark is the first former president to be named emeritus. Marc W. Pelletier, chairman of the board, thanked Landsmark for his service. “Ted embodies the idea that we should ‘make no little plans,’” Pelletier said. “He challenged our college and the entire architecture profession to become more forward-looking, dynamic, and inclusive. Fortunately, with Ted staying on as president emeritus, our institution will continue to benefit from his guidance, wisdom, and leadership.”

Melina Schuler, spokeswoman for the mayor, said the city is pleased Landsmark and the college reached an agreement. “We look forward to taking next steps with him in his position on the Boston Redevelopment Authority board,” she said.

Landsmark will have no formal role with the college.

“I look forward to serving as president emeritus and moving to this next stage of my career,” he said in a statement. “I am particularly eager to work with other academic leaders to envision a strong future for design education.”

Provost Julia Halevy is serving as acting president.
