Stacey Schulte specializes in research related to environmental land use planning and design. Her work focuses on various aspects of public lands planning, open space preservation and the relationship between urban growth and the environment. Her work includes projects on fiscal impacts of land conservation, habitat quality of protected areas and hazard mitigation. Recent projects include willingness-to-pay for land conservation and public perception of large scale conservation projects. Much of her work is conducted through survey research including surveys on wildfire mitigation behavior and field research on recreation use and impacts.

ENVD 1004 - Introduction to Environmental Design
Spring 2018 / Fall 2018 / Spring 2019
Introduces methods, principles and philosophies that guide environmental design. Explores ways of thinking about, and accomplishing, the act of design. Students contemplate the processes and motivations behind design decisions including discussions of environmental sustainability and social responsibility.
ENVD 1040 - Studio 1: Introduction to Planning and Urban Design
The fourth of four introductory studios in which students learn concepts and strategies related to urban planning and design. Students collaboratively develop a design solution to a small-scale problem within an urban fabric using basic skills of analysis and design iteration.
ENVD 1140 - Studio 2: Fundamentals of Planning and Urban Design
Through a small-scale urban planning and design project, students explore solutions to challenges in dynamic urban systems. Builds on knowledge and skills gained in the introductory studios to explore the human and environmental dimensions of intertwined systems within the built environment.
ENVD 2130 - Environmental Design Studio 2
Exposes students to a sequence of design investigations that lead to the development of design concepts for critical evaluation and discussion. The intent of this introductory design studio is to expose students to the fundamental design practices that are common to the disciplines of architecture, urban design and landscape design - disciplines that share the responsibility for shaping the designed environment. Recommended corequisite: ENVD 3003.
ENVD 3200 - Advanced ENVD Studio
Design studio dealing with problems at an intermediate level of complexity: emphasis is on the interaction of form, use, and multiple values and technologies in conjunction with issues and techniques drawn from other content area courses of the curriculum. May be repeated up to 18 total credit hours. Recommended prerequisite: ENVD 2130.
