Get hands-on, real-world experience through the Student Teams Exploring Pervasive Urban Problems (STEP UP) project. Through STEP UP, you’ll practice teamwork skills and apply the knowledge you gain in class as you explore the unique challenges of urban environments. You’ll hit the streets and gather data about problems such as traffic congestion, homelessness and crime, and then present your findings to city councils, business organizations and community groups, or publish them in papers, proposals and recommendations.
The STEP UP project has been incorporated into the curriculum of the following courses. Register for the course(s) to participate.
