University of Houston – Downtown

The University of Houston – Downtown (UHD) Center for Urban Agriculture and Sustainability (CUAS) was founded in 2015 through a grant from the United States Department of Agriculture. Its goal is to create and support sustainable neighborhoods in the Houston area using engagement and best practices in business, technology and science. Seventy percent of UHD’s 14,265 students are from underrepresented populations, and 80% of freshmen are the first in their families to attend college. Past projects in CUAS include solar-powered technology, community irrigation systems, an automatic composter and an aquaponics system.
