Center for Sustainable Suburban Development (CSSD)

Established in 2003, CSSD conducts and disseminates research on issues of suburban growth and the impact of this growth on social, environmental, and transport systems.

Ronald O. Loveridge, an associate professor of political science, recently completed a 33-year career as Riverside mayor and councilman before stepping in to the role of Director of CSSD.

What Do We Mean By Sustainability?

  • Living within the limits imposed by available resources and the carrying capacity of our environment.

  • Examining the interconnections among the economy, social well-being, and the environment.

  • Equitably distributing resources and opportunities for advancement across places and among generations.
