TEACHING AND RESEARCH
Join me in gaining a greater
understanding of societal change in theory and everyday life.
how community development organizations can draw on social science to improve
their understanding of the dynamics of target communities. The class will
examine how research on neighborhoods can be used by agencies to develop and
evaluate strategies to revitalize neighborhoods based on grassroots planning
and a understanding of factors that undermine or support their efforts. Completion
of Sociology 101 is recommended, but not required for this course.
