The Office of Research and Engagement is sponsoring a new Community of Scholars (CoS) to develop transformative intelligent systems that enable enhanced transportation modeling and increased use of multi-modal, on-demand, and door-to-door transportation solutions for traditionally underrepresented and vulnerable communities.

Led by Courtney Cronley, an associate professor in the College of Social Work, AccessKnox will examine transportation engineering, the built environment (i.e., land use and spatial planning), and data science, with the broad vision of designing inclusivity and equity.
