City Building Institute launched at Ryerson

November 13, 2014

Earlier this week, Ryerson University celebrated the launch of the new City Building Institute, designed to address urban issues on a local, national, and global scale. The institute will gather diverse perspectives from multiple disciplines to “improve public policy literacy through cutting-edge research and integrated teaching.” The new institute will be housed in the Faculty of Community Services, and research activities will be guided by 5 themes: integrated land use and social/physical infrastructure investment; inclusive and complete communities through economic, social, and design strategies; new options for universal mobility, including green corridors and active transportation; climate change mitigation/adaptation through urban design and environmental planning; and financial instruments that advance city building goals. The City Building Institute will be co-chaired by distinguished visiting scholar Anne Golden and Ryerson professor David Amborski. Ryerson News | Institute Website
