An Opportunity to Rethink Urban Poverty

phillyThe Philadelphia Field Project is currently recruiting students for the 2010 project year. In this integrative research experience, students re-examine urban poverty outside the realm of traditional economic development.

For five weeks in May and June of 2010, students will reside in West Philadelphia under the tutelage of Dr. Lakshman Yapa. Each participant creates his or her own unique project to improve the quality of life for the people of West Philadelphia. Many projects engage fields such as nutrition, housing, transportation, healthcare, energy, and small business development.

You can find additional information on the project website and apply here. Dr. Yapa is holding an informational meeting TODAY at 6 pm in room C-9 Atherton Hall.
