Rutgers University Department of Landscape Architecture (la56.rutgers.edu/rula/)
Consistent with the aspirations of Rutgers University, the Department of Landscape Architecture is committed to serving the citizens of the state. The wise use of land, enhancing the quality of our built environment, accommodating human activity while minimizing the negative impact on natural and cultural systems, and the development of a land stewardship ethic are critical issues confronting the state and the nation. These issues establish the fundamental framework of the instructional, research and service programs in landscape architecture.



Stony Brook Millstone Watershed Association (www.thewatershed.org)
Stony Brook Millstone Watershed Association, in Pennington, NJ, is a non-profit dedicated to the enhancement of the quality of the natural environment in the 265-square mile region drained by Stony Brook and the Millstone River. They address key issues affecting water quality and land use, educate area residents about the ecology of the natural environment, and preserve open space by maintaining a 785-acre nature reserve and a working organic farm.



Voorhees Transportation Policy Institute at Rutgers University (policy.rutgers.edu/tpi/)
The Alan M. Voorhees Transportation Policy Institute is the nucleus of transportation, training and education, policy, and research at Rutgers University's Bloustein School of Planning and Public Policy. The Institute is committed to finding innovative approaches to transportation problem solving of benefit to the state, region, and nation. From its inception in 1998, the Voorhees Transportation Policy Institute quickly established itself in transportation policy research. The diversity of projects TPI has undertaken from the outset is indicative of its capacity for a wide range of transportation policy research. Projects include mobility and sustainability, transportation policies of a state growth management plan, state transportation finance since World War II, pedestrian awareness, and justification for a feasibility study of an exclusive right-of-way transit project.
