ATLANTIS Transatlantic Education Program: URBANISMS OF INCLUSION
The Atlantis Urbanisms of Inclusion Program is a design, research and curriculum transatlantic student and faculty exchange program that addresses emerging territorial and socio-ecological issues which accompany the dual challenges of rapid global urbanization and the adaptation of cities in response to climate change and transnational migrations. The partnership provides a comparative framework designed to enable effective new and innovative urban curricular concepts, research methods, knowledge and action, in academic, policy and community contexts.
Program activities began on September 1, 2010 and will end on August 31, 2014. This joint curricular program aims to produce highly qualified, university-trained urbanists, designers, planners and researchers. The program brings together the strength and richness of different design approaches and methods, and the long tradition and experiences in urbanism in each of the participating universities.
The Atlantis Program is conducted cooperatively by the U.S. Department of Education’s Fund for the Improvement of Postsecondary Education (FIPSE) and the European Commission’s Directorate General for Education and Culture. The purpose of this program is to promote a student-centered, international dimension to higher education and training in a wide range of academic and professional disciplines.
The 4-year Atlantis grant was awarded in 2010 to develop the Urbanisms of Inclusion: A Transatlantic Education Program (UI/TEP). The program is comprised of six university partners, including: Parsons The New School for Design (United States) and KU Leuven (Belgium) as lead institutions, and with TU Eindhoven (The Netherlands), IUA Venice (Italy), UC San Diego (Unites States) and Morgan State University in Baltimore (United States) as partners.
