CURE/APPAM Webinar: University Engagement in Community Development
The Center for Urban Research and Education (CURE) at Rutgers-Camden, in cooperation with the Association of Public Policy and Management (APPAM), is hosting a conference and Webinar that will 1) highlight the importance and desirability of university engagement in community development, engendering interaction between scholars and practitioners; and 2) illustrate the experience of several universities in creating and implementing initiatives that contribute to community development in their host communities. The Institutional Member Forum will provide academics and practitioners involved in such efforts the opportunity to reflect on the successes, failures, and lessons learned when Universities participate in or provide support for community development efforts. The forum will be available online at APPAM.org. Panelists include Wendell Pritchett – Chancellor of Rutgers University’s Camden campus, John Kromer- former Director of the Office of Housing for the City of Philadelphia and former Director of the Camden Redevelopment Agency, and Kathe Newman – Director, Voorhees Center for Civic Engagement, Rutgers University, NB.
