Who We Are

ENVD at the University of Colorado Boulder (CU) is an interdisciplinary program where we explore at the intersections of Architecture, Environmental Product Design, Landscape Architecture, Sustainable Planning and Urban Design to address our world’s most pressing social and environmental issues. ENVD has been cultivating interdisciplinary thinkers, designers, and planners for over 50 years. We have more than 4,300 alumni. As one of the most in-demand programs on the Boulder campus, we attract accomplished and passionate students. Our interdisciplinary curriculum embraces creativity, critical thinking and practice. Our work spans scales from human-scale environmental product design to regional planning. We provide a rigorous but supportive environment for our students and faculty. We are renowned for graduating environmental designers who integrate knowledge of the built and natural environments in creative, critical and impactful ways.

With a history of social and environmental activism in Boulder and Colorado we operate with a keen awareness of the struggles facing humanity and our environments. The spirit of creative and impact-driven dedication to address social and environmental injustices is a hallmark of CU Boulder and a defining aspect of ENVD’s culture. In this context, ENVD is committed to elevating new forms of teaching in the environmental design fields.

We are committed to shaping an equitable future for environmental design professions and scholarship. We aim to uphold and exceed CU’s commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion.
