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.
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 creative project and final project presentation.
For the Fall 2021 semester, this course will be offered in-person on Mondays from 6:30-8:00 p.m. in 214B Bauer Wurster.
Creative Projects: 15%
