College of Environmental Design


Our collaborations bring together world-class faculty, passionate students, and experienced professionals to develop new ideas, apply advanced research, and shape a better future for the earth and its inhabitants.

Collaborations expand our reach into local communities and help shape national policy and international development. They allow us to apply our world-class research to real-life situations in order to shape healthy communities, address social disparities, and design more sustainable buildings and landscapes.

As part of a major research institution, we are immersed in the most advanced ideas and practices in our fields. CED’s faculty and students offer collaborators unparalleled access to expertise, depth of knowledge, and breadth of experience. We are agile, able to conduct quick-turnaround studies, provide recommendations, and undertake impact evaluations. Our ideas are fresh, but are grounded in solid, objective research.
