Making a Difference: Institute for Smart Structures
ISS is a research center focused on integrating architecture and emerging technologies. It offers research and development for the building sector and combines the areas of material science, engineering, and architecture to solve immediate problems as well as provide revolutionary concepts for new applications. Over the last decade, the Institute has overseen the construction of three net-zero prototype buildings for use as research and education tools.
Making a Difference: Public Library Service-Learning
This public library service-learning course allows students to partner with public libraries and other agencies to develop community-based projects in different local settings. The course was among UT’s first to pilot the new “S” designation for course-based service-learning.
