In the summer of 2006, the City of Phoenix passed a $200 million municipal bond to build Arizona State University a downtown campus. This substantial investment follows a trend of many major cities turning to higher education as a new source of urban economic development. Davarian Baldwin will share insights from over sixty interviews he conducted in metropolitan Phoenix to assess the benefits and consequences of building, what he calls, “UniverCities.”
 
A light lunch will be provided on a first-come, first-served basis. If you plan on bringing a class or group to a Thursday Common Hour program, please e-mail common-hour@trincoll.edu in order for adequate food to be requested.
