Brooklyn Waterfront Research Center

Brooklyn Waterfront Research Center

The Brooklyn Waterfront Research Center raises awareness about critical issues facing Brooklyn’s waterfront through its three-part mission of education, research and public outreach. The Brooklyn Waterfront Research Center is an institutionally affiliated research and education center that advances interdisciplinary inquiry about one of Brooklyn’s most valuable but least understood assets: its waterfront. The Center serves as an institutional focal point for many of the waterfront-related, grant-funded initiatives that City Tech has developed and plays an integral role in the College’s federally funded redesign of its Pathways program. This new curriculum uses the waterfront as its central focus and is based on active learning, place-based instruction, and interdisciplinary cooperation. The Center functions as an incubator for new waterfront-related research and as a venue to bring students into the knowledge-creation process. Furthermore, it reaches beyond the walls of the college through its public events, conferences, web initiatives, and seminar programs. Through such means, it draws attention to key issues that affect Brooklyn’s waterfront communities and enables dialogue between key policymakers, experts, educators, and community leaders.
