Terry Clements teaches graduate and undergraduate design, construction documentation, and cultural landscape studies of the United States, in addition to advising on PhD dissertations, masters and undergraduate theses. Since 2000, she has led an annual multi-disciplinary education abroad program in Western Europe for interdisciplinary studies of the built environment.

Her recent scholarship and outreach activities address the educational, legal and regulatory issues that define the discipline and practice of landscape architecture. Recent work includes research on the history of women in landscape architecture, the evolution of landscape architecture education and practice in the United States, and community engagement in landscape architecture. Clements has served on state and national American Society of Landscape Architects (ASLA) licensure committees (working toward professional licensure and addressing regulatory impediments to practice), the Policy Committee (authoring society’s policies affecting the landscape), and the ASLA Council on Education (addressing concerns about the growth of the profession. As a member of the VA ASLA, she has regularly produced or coordinated conferences and exhibitions, as well as programs promoting landscape architecture's contributions to public and private landscapes. The Virginia Chapter twice awarded her the President's Award for Service before granting her the Award for Distinguished Service, their highest award in 2004 and again in 2008. She recently served as the interim chair of the International Federation of Landscape Architects’ Committee on Education and has served as national ASLA VP of Education. Clements served as president of the Council of Educators of Landscape Architecture. Clements has also received Virginia Tech’s highest award for teaching and been recognized for her scholarship of engagement.

Before entering academia, Clements, a licensed landscape architect, practiced in multi-disciplinary landscape architecture design and design-build firms in New England and California.
