The Center for Community Design & Preservation (CCDP) serves as the public service and outreach office for the College of Environment & Design (CED) at The University of Georgia (UGA). We provide opportunities for our faculty and students in landscape architecture, historic preservation, and urban planning to engage in real-world projects and put their academic pursuits into practice.

This position serves as the Program Coordinator for Georgia’s “Findit” Historic Resource Survey Partnership Program between the University of Georgia-College of Environment and Design (UGA-CED) and the Georgia Transmission Corporation (GTC), the Georgia State Historic Preservation Office (Historic Preservation Division – Dept. of Community Affairs), the Georgia Department of Transportation (GDOT), public utilities, and Georgia communities. The Coordinator is the Primary Investigator for annual multi-year research and outreach grants sponsored by GTC (now in its 18th year) and GDOT (2-year mitigation project) as well as smaller environmental review, mitigation studies, and community surveys for Georgia municipalities and non-profits that contribute data to Georgia’s Archaeological, Natural and Historic Resources GIS database (GNAHRGIS). Additionally, the Findit program funds and provides skills-based professional training in architectural history and field survey for UGA College of Environment and Design (CED) students through 3-7 graduate assistantships per year. The Program Coordinator position (and all other student salaries and operational costs) is funded by and contingent upon sponsored project grants, which are reviewed/renewed annually. As a staff member of the UGA-CED Center for Community Design & Preservation (CCDP), this position also contributes to other outreach and engagement opportunities promoted by CCDP, and serves as a colleague of the UGA College of Environment and Design, adding value through committee positions and collegial partnerships.
