Research & Outreach
The SPDC faculty’s research focuses on compelling core societal needs within and across disciplines and seeks to enrich community and quality of life at local, state, national and international levels. We see world-class built environments as opportunities to focus our future research about where we live, work, play and learn.
The SPDC faculty have historically worked on a wide array of outreach and engagement programs within communities, professional organizations, in concert with elected and appointed officials, and the general public. Research underpins these outreach efforts and students are active participants in these learning opportunities, which provides them with real-world experience.
