Community Engagement

Faculty Advisor: Jennifer Hurley

Field Site: Pennsylvania Horticultural Society

Field Supervisors: Lauren Medsker, Liane Sullivan, and Casey Kuklick

Course Description:

The course explores the ways in which nonprofits engaged in urban greening initiatives navigate community engagement, especially in disadvantaged neighborhoods. Examining both past practices of community engagement and current literature on this topic, certain values and best practices arise in enabling a wider pool of participants in the process. By truly encompassing a wider audience, future urban greening efforts will garner community support, something for which this course lays the framework for.
