Tara Bengle outlined the popular education model and how it is being employed for empowerment in Reid Park. Joe Howarth talked about the research conducted with Dr. Janni Sorensen (also in attendance at Urban Affairs) and Liz Morrell concerning place attachment, how it impacts neighborhood university partnerships, and a new way to partner with neighborhoods without strong place attachment.
