• The Humanities + Urbanism + Design Initiativebridges the humanities and design disciplines to promote the integrated investigation of 21st century urbanism and architecture at the University of Pennsylvania. The project was launched by a generous award from the Andrew Mellon Foundation in 2013, which was renewed in 2018. The renewed grant is specifically devoted to “The Inclusive City” and has twin objectives: to stimulate inter- and multi- disciplinary work on diversity and inclusion in the built environment and to build an increasingly diverse and inclusive community of scholars who do this work.
