About the Course:


The student-led course will examine why there is a need for decent and affordable housing and what the public and private sectors are doing to address this need. The course will feature weekly guest speakers from academia, government, and non-profit organizations who will share with students their perspectives on housing. Students will participate in discussions and group activities to further reflect on material presented by lecturers.


Topics include housing segregation, gentrification, public policy, community and economic development, homelessness, health and housing, land use and housing planning, green building, privatization of housing, and more. In addition, a fieldwork component will give students the opportunity to take action by building Habitat for Humanity homes or volunteering for an affordable housing organization.
