POLI 443 Urban Policy Analysis
Fall '22 Wednesday's 4:30pm to 7:30pm
Dr. Eric Stokan
How should our cities and regions grapple with issues around public health, crime, economic development, housing, education, segregation, gentrification, and transportation access and equity?
POLI 443: Urban Problems and Policy Analysis asks you to join me in understanding these issues, how we got here, and where we are going.
This course will feature a mix of discussions (seminar style course), simulations (Fun activities where you get to experience first-hand how to address these issues from different perspectives), and guest lectures from those in the community grappling with these challenges.
This course is great preparation for students considering Public Policy grad programs. It also provides great training in policy analysis. Skills that are incredibly marketable and relevant in the workforce.
