Resource Summary: The Transportation Equity Curriculum is a joint project of the Center for Urban Transportation Research (CUTR) at the University of South Florida (USF), the University of Wisconsin - Madison, and California Polytechnic State University (CalPoly). It was produced under a grant from the Center for Transportation Equity, Decisions and Dollars (CTEDD) at the University of Texas at Arlington. The objective of this project was to prepare a curriculum on equity for graduate transportation programs (planning, engineering, public policy, etc.) that incorporates active learning techniques. The nine modules in this report address various topics of importance to transportation planning with a targeted focus on equity. The modules are designed to be used in two ways: (1) plug-and-play, to supplement existing classes, and/or (2) as a full course on equity in transportation.
