Faculty Spotlight

Greg Davis, Ph.D.

Associate Professor of Landscape Design, Undergraduate Programs Director

Davis, GregDr. Davis did not take the "traditional" route between his undergraduate and graduate studies. After working six years as a county horticulture extension agent, Davis was certain there was a lot more he wanted to learn about writing and communications. He then obtained his Master's degree from the Journalism School at K-State. By that time, Davis decided he was interested in teaching at the collegiate level. He then stayed in Manhattan to earn his Ph.D. while instructing labs in the Horticulture Department.

Prior to his return to Kansas State University, Dr. Davis spent three years (1993-1996) at the University of Florida – Gainesville as an Assistant Professor, and another three years (1996-1999) at the University of Nebraska – Lincoln. After both of these appointments, Davis decided he liked teaching more than research. At this time, he was interviewed for and was offered his current position. In 1999, Davis returned to K-State to serve a 100% teaching, nine-month contract. He teaches six different courses throughout the year, mostly in Horticultural Design.
