Economic and Community Development
Fall 2016 quarter
Is community and economic development different or are the objectives similar? This course will provide a foundation of development while comparing and contrasting community and economic development approaches. Additionally, local and global development perspectives will be explored analyzing different economic and community development decisions. The intersection of community and economic development will be framed as well as the desired outcomes of each approach. This course will be split into lecture and discussion for part of the class as well as in class projects and group assignments for the remainder. Attendance is critical to the success of this class and will provide the best learning environment for this conversational exchange of ideas. A final group project will be a culmination of concepts and ideas throughout the semester and this paper and presentation will be completed by analyzing case studies of communities where there is an intersection of economic and community development.
