Engaged scholarship

Work undertaken by R2G faculty and students collaborating with community partners takes many forms – urban planning and landscape architectural designs and reports, design creations, journal articles, book chapters, policy briefs, presentations, webinars and film/video. Additionally, building on their R2G work, faculty are generating engaged scholarship related to community development, service-learning, democratic design, resiliency, sustainable development, energy, and more. Some of R2G's works are retrievable here.
