Through the planning and building processes, CITYbuild works for social justice by partnering directly with local community groups to address their immediate and long-term sustainable needs. Dozens of Design Schools across the nation and community based non-profits in New Orleans make up the CITYbuild Consortium. The role of host (and, in large part, first-year supporter) was taken up by the Tulane City Center at Tulane School of Architecture.
Participating CITYbuild Consortium Schools:
University of Arkansas, Boston Architectural College, Georgia Institute of Technology, University of Kansas, University of Kentucky, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, University of Minnesota, Univeristy of Montana, Univeristy of Southern California, University of Texas at Arlington, University of Texas at Austin, Tulane University, Washington University, Wentworth Institute of Technology
