When LaGuardia was first founded, its curriculum contained a college-wide, interdisciplinary requirement unlike any in the United States. From then until today, each of our students is required to take an Urban Studies course in order to graduate.
Urban Studies courses offer students a range of methods to learn. This Guide will you to find different types of resources for writing and oral assessments.
The Urban Studies committee is sponsoring a panel and discussion focusing on struggles over the construction of Stuyvesant Town, a public/private housing development in lower Manhattan. The discussion will consider questions about race, housing, and development through the lens of these conflicts. William Kelly will show pieces of his film, "The Burden of Eden," now in production. He will also discuss the historical and political context and questions that inform his project.
The panel and discussion will take place on Tuesday, October 28th. From 2:15 to 3:15 to accommodate classes. It will be in Room E-242.
