Workshop Description

This course will familiarize students with the essential knowledge and skills needed to engage in the planning and implementation of inner-city and suburban revitalization efforts. Students will receive a broad overview of the theories and realities of community decline and redevelopment.

This course intends to accomplish several major objectives:

To offer students an understanding of the evolution of US economic development policy; - To expose students to a variety of current revitalization strategies, including both place-based and people-based approaches;

  • To introduce students to the kinds of institutions and organizations that promote economic development, including government, community-based organizations, foundations, public-private business attraction agencies, universities, job training agencies, and small business lenders;
  • To provide students with a sense of the market and political opportunities and obstacles that economic development practitioners face, and
  • To instruct students on techniques for involving residents, local business owners, elected officials, and other vital stakeholders in efforts to improve their communities.
