Students in the Greenspun College of Urban Affairs are encouraged to learn about urban contexts through their coursework, research, and practice. By learning through cutting edge curriculum, engaging in community partnerships, and interacting with a high quality faculty, students have the opportunity to develop solutions for individuals, families, and resilient communities.
