As Assistant Professor Kelechi Uzochukwu’s Urban Policy and Politics class (GVPP 326) neared the end of the semester, she sought an opportunity for her students to get out of the classroom to see how one policy initiative was implemented in Baltimore. Pictured below is Uzochukwu’s class during their tour of several of Baltimore’s Green Network Plan (GNP) project sites in East and Northeast Baltimore. The GNP projects are funded by the city of Baltimore, and they bring together city agencies, residents, neighborhood partners and Baltimore businesses to transform vacant properties into community assets like recreation areas and urban gardens. Jenny Katz of Civic Works, Inc., one of the GNP grantees, very graciously facilitated the tour.
The College of Public Affairs has done it again! Thanks to the many donations made by students, alumni, faculty, staff and friends on Giving Tuesday, CPA won UB’s 2016 #BowOnPoe competition, garnering the highest number of gifts out of all four schools and the library. Dean Hartley and the college are now two-time reigning champions, having won last year’s competition as well. Today, Dean Hartley was presented with the coveted 2016 “Bowphy,” in honor of the college’s big win. Thanks to the generosity and school spirit of everyone who contributed, we are now the proud owners of not one but two bowphies!
