Located at New York University, the Institute for Civil Infrastructure Systems is dedicated to linking infrastructure professionals with each other, along with providing information to the general public about new insights and interdisciplinary approaches within the complex world of civil infrastructure systems. The site is divided into five sections including those focused on education, information exchange, and research. The education section is a good place to start for first-time visitors as it contains some of the Institute's case studies which have arisen out of various combined meetings with representatives from higher education. The research section contains a number of interdisciplinary reports, including one on environmental health and policy in the South Bronx and another one that addresses the lessons learned from the 9/11 disaster in New York City.
