Making a Difference

The College of Agriculture, Urban Sustainability and Environmental Sciences (CAUSES) of the University of the District of Columbia (UDC) is deeply committed to servicing the residents of the District of Columbia. With a three-pronged approach of teaching, research and community outreach, UDC CAUSES seeks to make a measurable, positive difference that starts locally and eventually goes on to impact the nation and the world. As the only land-grant college in the only public university in D.C., our programs focus on improving economic conditions, social and cultural circumstances, and the health of people and their living environments.


The community is our classroom. This means that what we teach is steeped not only in sound theory, but also in the knowledge we draw from the community and region around us. We offer a wide range of research programs through the Water Resources Research Institute, the Agricultural Experiment Station, the 143-acre Firebird Research Farm, and the Architecture Research Institute. We also offer community outreach programs, for all ages, through our Center for 4-H and Youth Development, Center for Sustainable Development and Resilience, Center for Architectural Innovation and Building Science, Center for Urban Agriculture and Gardening Education, and Center for Nutrition, Diet and Health.
