USC Price undergrads set sights on Detroit’s revival
An undergraduate class at the USC Price School of Public Policy spent a week in Detroit to help tackle what many consider to be the most monumental urban revitalization challenge in America. Perhaps no metropolitan area in the country has faced as many problems as the Motor City. But where many see urban decay, planners and policy analysts see opportunity. Assistant Professor Michael Thom led the Price undergraduate class to venture outside California, so that students could witness firsthand the decline of a once-great city and the efforts being made to turn it around.
