Curriculum Vitae

Community Engagement

My research and teaching are motivated by my own experiences as a practitioner working for community-based nonprofit housing and community economic development organizations. I continue to value the hard work of such groups by collaborating regularly with a variety of community partners to improve the climate for local neighborhood planning and revitalization. This includes:

  • Attending regular neighborhood planning meetings
  • Introducing my students to real neighborhoods and passionate practitioners through tours, fieldwork, and speakers
  • Focusing student coursework on projects of relevance to community partners (see Course-Based Projects under Teaching)
  • Producing scholarly research on the programming, advocacy, and accomplishments of the community development industry.

  • Community Loan Fund of the Capital Region
