Center for Metropolitan Density set its mission to understand the value of density, development, and design through multidisciplinary research, education, and outreach by promoting economically feasible, environmentally responsible and socially equitable downtowns, urban areas and metropolitan regions.
The center accomplishes this mission by conducting innovative interdisciplinary research among CAPPA disciplines (design, urban design, architecture, landscape architecture, planning, and public policy, etc.) as well as with other allied disciplines across UT Arlington (such as real estate), providing educational activities for students and industry members, and disseminating knowledge through service, and outreach primarily with private sector partners in Dallas-Fort Worth and other metropolitan regions across the globe.
