As reported in the Hyde Park Bulletin (Volume 19, Issue 19), on May 5 students from Metropolitan College’s Urban Studies Capstone course (MET UA 805) presented The Power of Green! Strategic Proposals for the Hyde Park Community. The virtual event focused on actions that could be taken to enhance access to, and quality of, the neighborhood’s green spaces, and provoke economic development in the Hyde Park central business district. The four proposals will be made available to the public.

“We want our students to be agents of change,” says Associate Professor of the Practice Madhu C. Dutta-Koehler, director of the City Planning & Urban Affairs programs, and a resident of Hyde Park. “This is a unique neighborhood that needs to be celebrated. Our hope is they will work in the community when they graduate.”

A key course in the Metropolitan College City Planning & Urban Affairs programs, the Urban Studies Capstone is designed to integrate the principles and applications of city planning, urban affairs, and public policy while fostering interdisciplinary partnerships and helping to cultivate industry alliances and cooperation.
