The Institute for the Built Environment is based at Colorado State University. We form interdisciplinary teams of faculty, students, and off-campus professionals to take research to practice.
Advance the development of healthy, thriving built environments.
WHAT WE DO
Since 1994, IBE has performed on and off-campus teaching, research, and professional services focused on green building and healthy, sustainable communities. Aligned with Colorado State University’s land grant mission, IBE provides expertise, applied research, and education to Colorado communities that encourage collaborative learning, citizen engagement, and innovation.
In 2016, IBE was honored as a CSU Program of Research & Scholarly Excellence. Programs are awarded this designation because they have achieved great distinction and set a standard for excellence in research, teaching and service that may serve as a model for programs throughout the institution and externally.
