Putting the Public Back into Public Universities

Putting the Public Back into Public Universities means creating inclusive learning spaces that empower people to become both students and teachers. Texas CityLab (TCL) creates these spaces by transforming Texas cities into classrooms. Multi-disciplinary students connect with Texas communities to jointly research and develop sustainability solutions grounded in place. Join us to discuss how local and University expertise can unite to strengthen shared problem solving in cities.
