The Student Experience:
Students will be assigned to transportation planning projects—including the Sustainable Transportation Vermont (STVT) blog--that match their interests and academic goals.
Time commitment: Students are expected to complete 120 hours of work for their community partner project (which is around 8-10 hours per week). This program is designed to match the amount of work required of a typical academic course.
- Examine how the built environment shapes our transportation options, and the range of solutions available.
- Develop grounded solutions to reduce automobility and increase sustainable solutions that increase mobility and access.
- Understand how the location, design, culture and policies of the places you have lived, have shaped your mobility options.
- Interact with planning professionals and advocates to gain an understanding of transportation planning.
