Through a threefold outreach approach (train-equip-assist), TTC seeks to help communities become more equitable, resilient, and adaptive.
We offer short courses, workshops, and continuing education opportunities informed by the latest research and exemplary practices and developed by our expert faculty. Please contact TTC Staff (email@example.com) if you are interested in training opportunities. Ask if the course qualifies for AICP, ASLA, CFM, IAEM, and/or AIA.

- Stakeholder Engagement
- Vulnerability Assessment
- Community Asset Mapping
- Texas Planning Coastal Atlas
- American Community Survey 101
Other workshops can be developed at the request of the partner to meet specific needs.

- Data collection
- Research solutions
- Dispute resolution
- Grant writing
