Listing of University Course Providers

In effort to facilitate a network of course instructors and monitor the number of pedestrian and bicycle courses being taught, the subcommittee has assembled a listing of course providers it has been made aware of; this list may not be complete and some information may have changed. Additionally, many course instructors have shared course materials (such as course syllabus, websites), which can be found at the Pedestrian and Bicycle Information Center website. Please contact Kristen Langford (langford@hsrc.unc.edu) to be added to this list or to share course materials on the site.
