Center for Environmental Engineering
The Kentucky Institute for the Environment and Sustainable Development (KIESD) at the University of Louisville began in 1994. Through research, education, and advocacy, KIESD tries to highlight connections between the environment and the economy, and between academia, government, and industry. KIESD brings public attention on the need to develop the economy in harmony with natural systems which work for people in their communities.
The Institute is comprised of eight thematic program centers. The Center for Environmental Engineering is one of the eight centers. The Centers in KIESD are each based in a school or college within the University; as a result, each is a multidisciplinary effort that draws faculty and resources primarily from its own academic unit. However, each Center has been mandated to develop outreach policies that will encourage affiliation with industry, the government, and other academic departments to ensure successful overall programs.
KIESD has been formed under the office of the Vice President for Research. Steven Meyers, Department of Pharmacology and Toxicology in the University of Louisville School of Medicine, is currently the director of KIESD.
