Teaching Mode: In Person

The Land Use Clinic gives students the opportunity to explore a variety of specific land use topics that are of current concern and relevance to the field, to the curriculum, and to society. Potential topics include renewable energy siting, natural resources, rural-based land uses, watershed management, agriculture, and sustainable urban planning. In our rapidly changing political environment, strategies that focus on the local level are increasingly more important to achieving our global sustainability goals. Students will work with the professor and practitioner-clients in the field to develop papers, research memoranda, and publications on a selected topic. The professor and guest speakers will conduct skill-based workshops focused on the tools and techniques needed to pursue a career in community land use planning. Students may select from a project list or can meet with the professor to design a relevant project and can work individually or on a team.

We recommend taking the Seminar on Land Use Planning before or in conjunction with the Land Use Clinic.
