The mission of the Heinz College Smart Growth Club is to help students explore the intricacies of and interconnections between three key fields and their practitioners: community and economic development, environmental policy, and state and local government.  The Smart Growth Club provides a venue for future leaders to come together and address critical issues affecting the livability of our region. Balancing the long-term impacts and short-term outcomes of sustainable and equitable growth requires an integrated understanding of social and environmental factors, economic development, and public policy. The ability to analyze information and build partnerships across these areas is critical for success in both public and private spheres, and is what we aim to promote among members of the Heinz College community.
