In line with the University of Miami's Roadmap initiatives for Innovative Education and Problem-Based Interdisciplinary Inquiry, run a design solutions course with students from both UM and Harvard in Spring 2018 overseen by Professor Joanna Lombard (UM), Assistant Professor Rosetta Elkin (Harvard), and TK (Abess Center) and focusing on adaptation pathways for communities generally overlooked in climate planning.
