U of O urbanism programs are based on 30 years of research by Mindy Fullilove, MD. The foundation of our courses is the conclusion that policies and planning trends promoting segregation and inequity have left cities fractured physically and socially. At U of O we believe that we can reconnect the physical barriers and reweave the social fabric by working together and learning from examples from around the world. We use Dr. Fullilove’s “Urban Alchemy: Restoring Joy in America’s Sorted Out Cities” as a guiding text, host urbanists-in-residence and take on community planning projects as part of our course work.
