Designing for Health: How Environments Help Humans to Flourish

Students within the College of Fine and Applied Arts are working with community partners to examine the relationship between health, design, and the built environment in the Peoria region. This project brings researchers and students in design and planning in conversation with stakeholders and residents to develop proposals for Peoria’s downtown and neighborhoods; novel learning experiences for advanced students; and a visible model for the College’s public engagement mission.
