In June, 2nd year graduate student Catherine French, 3rd year undergraduate student Joy Troyer, and Assistant Professor Travis Hicks applied and received a Graduate Studies Grant from UNCG. The grant is being used to research preservation and sustainability in the historic Glenwood neighborhood in Greensboro, NC.

The aim of the research is to create preservation guidelines for sustainable community development for the Glenwood neighborhood to use as it continues to progress and develop. Currently the group is researching the historical context of the neighborhood, and will be utilizing the LEED-ND (Neighborhood Development) standards as they develop their guidelines for integrating sustainability into Glenwood. The IARc group has also partnered with the local organization, Preservation Greensboro, in hopes of connecting and building a relationship between Glenwood, UNCG, and the community.
