      The University of Florida invites graduate students from other colleges
      and universities in the United States to enroll in the Study Abroad
      Program taking place in Brazil next summer.

      Four Brazilian cities will be experienced first-hand as part of the
      program: São Paulo, the second largest city in the world; Curitiba,
      internationally renowned for its planning initiatives; Maringá, a planned
      city developed by a British company in the coffee plantation region of
      Paraná; and Florianópolis, a capital city on an island. Most program
      activities will take place in Curitiba, but students will have time to
      explore other cities of their choice. In addition, students will have the
      option of going to Rio de Janeiro to attend the 2009 LASA conference.

      Some of the broader urban issues to be explored during the program are:
      community development, urban design, sustainable development, land use
      planning, urban land policy, transportation planning, affordable housing,
      economic development, and environmental planning. This year, there will
      be four general project topics to choose from: sustainable urban
      development & the built environment, affordable housing & informal
      settlements, urban parks & public health, and sustainable transportation
      planning/transit-oriented development. Students are free to choose a
      particular aspect of one of these general topics for their research
      project.
