Outreach_Educational and Social Media


















The world is changing, we aim to keep up. While the world's population has grown, the capacity of its citizens to connect has also expanded. As we inhabit an urban campus in the middle of the Sonoran Desert, we recognize the special responsibility to apply science in the development of campus landscapes and to extend those lessons throughout the world.  We are "the canary in the coal mine" as the conditions here in the American southwest are becoming increasingly relevant for cities globally. To this end, we have invested in online educational resources and social media to help spread the word!
