As part of its mission to educate the campus community about affordable housing issues, members of the Cal Habitat for Humanity campus chapter are facilitating this course.
This course will examine why there is a need for decent, affordable housing and how this need can be addressed. The course will feature guest speakers from academia, government, and nonprofit organizations who will share their perspectives on housing. Students will participate in discussions and group activities to further reflect on material presented by lecturers. They will apply their knowledge and improve their argumentative skills by taking part in a class policy debate about the housing crisis in the Bay Area.
This course is designed to give an overview of issues related to affordable housing. Topics include: housing segregation, gentrification, public policy, homelessness, health and housing, land use and city planning, evictions, informal housing, and more. In addition, a fieldwork component will give students the opportunity to take action by building homes with Habitat for Humanity or volunteering with a different antipoverty organization.
While there are no exams for this course, there will be a final project presentation and required field work.
No day(s) left until application deadline!
