Welcome to the Master of Sustainable Development Practice Program (MDP) UF blog!
Initiated with support from the MacArthur Foundation, the MDP degree at the University of Florida is focused on training development practitioners who are able to address development challenges facing poor, resource rich communities in innovative ways. The UF MDP bridges the Natural sciences, Social sciences, Health sciences and Management.
Our program strength lies in our faculty, who have, over the last 30 years, developed a niche working with resource rich communities in Africa and Latin America using grassroots participatory approaches to development and research. Faculty teaching in the program are involved in various cross-national collaborative projects.
