Center for Sustainable Development, University of Texas

The Center for Sustainable Development was started in 2001 to advance the University of Texas’ interest in promoting sustainable development and project based understanding of the connections between the environment, economic prosperity, and social justice. Through its public interest design courses, the Center seeks to address individual and community-scale issues such as the built environment’s effect on social and economic well-being.  Promoting equity as a necessary component of sustainability, the program seeks to contribute to the larger national discussion about how public interest design might be interwoven into architecture curricula to impact positively larger social problems.
