The course will take a "behind the scenes" look at the remarkable transformation in downtown Durham and the challenges ahead. The growth is the result of some remarkable leadership by people who had vision, persistence, and were willing to take risks. Community leaders, past and present, will be invited to tell the story of their involvement and the roles they played, as well as share their perspective on the challenges and obstacles they faced in helping to bring new life to a dormant city. They will also be invited to comment on some of the challenges the city faces as a result of the enormous growth and development in the last two decades. The goal of the class is to provide students a better understanding of Durham's evolution and what lies ahead if the city is to improve the quality of life for all of our citizens. A field trip is being planned to view some of the changes in Durham. Lecture (plus Questions) Facilitated DiscussionField Trip(s)
