This initiative coordinates existing University of Idaho expertise from eight academic departments in seven colleges, University of Idaho Extension and eight units/organizations both in and outside the institution. Dr. Steven Hollenhorst and Dr. Michael Scott are two CRISSP faculty involved in this project.
The three interdependent components of this initiative are:
- Academic Programs in bioregional planning and community design (M.S. and graduate certificate).
- Learning and Practice Collaborative that engages University of Idaho faculty and students to assist communities with sustainable community planning and development.
- Center for Effective Planning and Governance that delivers non-credit training to local elected leaders and professionals to plan and manage community resources for a sustainable future.
