Urban Land Publishes Joan Capelin’s Article on Graduate Courses About Sustainability

Urban Land, the publication of the Urban Land Institute, asked Joan Capelin to write an article for its August issue about sustainable education programs in university-based real estate development programs across the country.  The request came because Capelin Communications is known to be expert in communicating about green design.

Joan highlighted the sustainable curriculum of a past Capelin client, Arizona State University’s Master of Real Estate Development program, along with Clemson and the University of Maryland.  The feature article detailed various aspects of each program’s curriculum, so readers would know what to look for as they assessed available options.

Joan quoted R. Nicholas “Ryc” Loope, founding director of ASU’s graduate program: “Students must understand the science, economics, ethics, and strategies of sustainability before building or planning a new community.”
