What is the Urban Policy Immersion?

Students will explore issues and public policies affecting the urban poor in and around downtown Portland.  This immersion program happens during winter break (usually Wednesday through Saturday before classes resume in January). Students will visit numerous social service agencies, serve with local non-profits, stay at St. Andre Bessette Catholic Church,  and reflect on and discuss the challenges facing people in our city.

Stay tuned for blog entries for the January 2015 Urban Policy Immersion.
