The Program in Environmental Design orients engagement to the creation of healthy and sustainable communities with attention to social justice and economic vitality. Environmental design is inherently place-based. It supports innovation of and intervention in places.

Efficacy and ethics demand that environmental design engages with the users of these places. We do so in ways that are both collaborative and interdisciplinary, as well as integrate engaged scholarship, evidence-based practice and experiential learning to serve community needs.
