At a time when energy related issues are so significant—national security, economic development and Green House Gas management—the university can serve as a neutral open forum for their discussion. The goal of the Series is to provide an objective, factual and comprehensive analysis of the Southeast’s energy and power requirements to 2030 and to examine the extent to which clean energy technologies can meet these demands.

seeks to promote humanitarian design and demonstrate sustainable solutions to challenges within the built environment by adhering to three core objectives:
Provides training to architecture and other design professionals in public interest design with in-depth 2 day studies on methods of how design can address the critical issues faced by communities. Training in public interest design is a way of enhancing an existing design practice and learning skills to become pro-actively engaged in community-based design.The Harvard Case Method will be used to learn from examples. These case studies and best practices will be presented and discussed by leaders in the field. The curriculum will be formed around the Social Economic Environmental Design® (SEED) metric, a set of standards that outlines the process and principles of this growing approach to design. SEED goes beyond green design with a “triple bottom line” approach that includes the social and economic as well as the environmental. The SEED process takes a holistic, creative approach to design driven by community needs. This process provides a step-by-step aid for those who want to undertake public interest design.Continuing education credits will be given as required of professionals by the American Institute of Architects as well as a certification in the SEED process.
