This will be your chance to tie together what you’ve learned about such topics as affordable housing, gentrification, displacement, and megaproject redevelopment from the course readings and other material up to this point, as well as about the roles and responsibilities of universities like Georgia State in relation to their surrounding areas.
QUESTION/FOCUS: What are some of the sustainability challenges that urban neighborhoods like those on Atlanta’s near Westside have faced in recent decades? What factors were at work to produce these outcomes? What sorts of policy approaches were taken to what effect, and what kinds of strategies did neighborhood residents themselves undertake in addressing the challenges they faced? Based on what you know about the history of Georgia State’s nearby Westside neighborhoods, and about outreach initiatives at other universities, what would you say that community-Georgia State partnerships should look like for the best chance of success? As a Georgia State student, where do you see yourself personally in the process?
