Description

Building sustainable urban communities requires an understanding of the social and economic forces that shaped them and their modern environments. In this Faculty Mentoring Network, we will be using the historical practice of redlining to examine how social and economic factors over the last century have created disparities in environmental conditions in our urban communities that have significant implications for human health, biodiversity and evolution. We will use a combination of resources that have been gathered over this past fall 2020 as a jumping off point to develop course-based undergraduate research experiences (CUREs) that increase students’ understanding of Environmental Justice/ Social Justice issues using data-driven learning and authentic research experiences.
