Across the United States, community development practitioners work hard to revitalize blighted and underserved neighborhoods and help their low-income residents.

Learning from History: What the Community Development Past Can Tell Us About the Present
10 am to 4 pm
This class offers practitioners the opportunity to learn about the roots of community development, its accomplishments, and the challenges it faces in the days ahead. Participants will learn about the various trends that have shaped the history of community development and the current state of the profession and - through discussion - understand the current issues facing the field of community development and introduce new ways to think about the work.
