About DCP Research Symposium

Research is critical to advancing knowledge in the disciplines and programs in the University of Florida College of Design, Construction, and Planning (DCP). The disciplinary reach in DCP is quite impressive, including departments, schools, and programs from Architecture, Construction Management, Historic Preservation, Interior Design, Landscape Architecture, Sustainability, and the Built Environment to Urban and Regional Planning.

Collectively, the research and scholarship taking place in this mix are exciting. Our college hosts its thirteenth Research Symposium—we welcome the time and space to explore extraordinary people-and place-based scholarship in our community.

Welcome to the 2021 DCP Research Symposium and explore:

A virtual poster session celebrates student research from PhDs, master’s students, and undergraduate scholars who are ready to share their research and creative scholarship with you.

Learn about cutting edge research of the new cohort of tenure track faculty from five departments or schools who joined DCP this semester.

Learn about the research-in-action from a sampling of research centers in the college:

FIBER (Florida Institute for Built Environment Resilience)

GeoPlan (Geo-Facilities Planning and Information Research Center)

Powell Center for Construction and Environment

Shimberg Center for Housing Studies

Learn about critical issues in Equity and Resilience relating to disaster risk management, resilience that impacts Florida and global practice from a panel of blue-ribbon experts representing the World Bank Group; Global Resilient Cities Network; City of Miami Beach – Resilience; Future Ready at City of Orlando; Florida Institute of Built Environment Resilience.
