What makes your community unique? What features in your city or town provide lasting value?
Utah’s rapid growth brings many benefits to the state, but it also threatens many of the attributes that make our towns and communities unique.
At the next USU Research Landscapes, we’ll discuss planning and design strategies that can promote a “sense of place” in our communities by identifying and developing the best features in the places we live.

What is Research Landscapes?

At Utah State University Research Landscapes, we provide an entry-point for state and community decision-makers across the Wasatch Front to connect with the researchers who are investigating the most critical issues facing the state.

Why should I attend?

As the state’s land-grant institution, Utah State University is uniquely situated in the state to help solve Utah’s land, water, and air challenges. During the event, the presenters will share data-driven discoveries to provide the state’s decision-makers and stakeholders with tools and insights to address these critical issues.

What is the event like?

Each virtual event will feature a video presentation that highlights the researchers and their work, followed by a live question-and-answer session with the presenters via Zoom. Both aspects of the event will be available on the Research Landscapes homepage on the day of the event.
