Urban Policy and Community Development
Over the past decades, globalization, immigration, technology, crime, and other social, economic, and political forces have radically altered urban life. Faculty in this area attempt to understand the real-world sources and consequences of urban poverty and problems that cities and urban dwellers face, from education and housing to policing and segregation.
