Below is a list of UDC research institutes with a primary focus on sustainability:

Water Resources Research Institute
Responding to the complex water resource challenges of the present and future, WRRI provides research and training to our students and the broader community. Created in 1973 by the Water Resources Research Act of 1964, WRRI at UDC is the only urban-based water research center in the nation. WRRI’s focus on water quality testing and stormwater control has positioned the Institute to expand its leadership in the sustainable water resource management field.

Center for Excellence in Renewable Energy
Since it opened in 2006, CERE has been working to address issues related to the rising global demand for sustainable energy. The Center is currently in line to receive up to $500,000 as part of a larger Federal payment to the university to significantly enhance and expand research efforts.

Agricultural Experiment Station
UDC conducts research and provides hands-on learning opportunities at Muirkirk Farm, a 143-acre partially forested site, located in Beltsville. AES focuses on health, nutrition, food production, and natural resources, working closely with the U.S. Department of Agriculture to provide sustainable solutions to the most pressing food systems problems.
