Community Development Studio Students

A Community Development Studio taught by Professor Norm Glickman and Assistant Professor Kathe Newman recently toured Newark and Irvington to better understand residential foreclosures brought on by the collapse of the sub-prime lending market.

 

The 17 students are working with the Newark-Essex Foreclosure Task Force and toured the area with staff from the Essex County Division of Housing; HANDS, a community organization in Orange; and the Episcopal Community Development Corporation, a CDC in Newark.
