Several College of Architecture and Planning faculty have been awarded grants by the Institute for International Business and the Center for International Business Education and Research (CIBER) at the University of Colorado Denver, to support the development of CAP's activities in China:
- Ann Komara, associate professor and chair of landscape architecture, for the East-West Interchange: Lectures and Publications on Landscape Architecture in China and the United States.
- Yuk Lee, professor of planning and associate dean of academic affairs, for an internship and academic partnership between UC Denver, Tongji University in Shanghai, China, and Gensler.
- Brian Muller, associate professor of planning, for the Yunnan Program in Geo-Planning and Design.
- Jeremy Németh, assistant professor of planning and design and director of the master of urban design program, and Jason Rebillot, senior instructor of architecture, to support the development of a long- term, sustainable, joint urban design studio with Tongji University in Shanghai, China. Although the international studio is already a required course in the Master of Urban Design (MUD) program, the grant will help the studio become a formalized joint offering, taught by instructors from both UC Denver and Tongji.
- Chris Nims, director of internships and mentorships and associate professor of architecture, for an internship and academic partnership between UC Denver, Tongji University in Shanghai, China, and Gensler.
