Community Economic Development Courses
The L.P. Cookingham Institute of Urban Affairs offers two courses, a one credit and a two credit course in community and economic development. The one credit course provides the fundamentals of economic development influences, public policy analysis and preparation and community organization and strategies. The second course offers a practical application of these concepts through a series of role-playing simulations. The courses can be taken separately or together although some prior knowledge will be required to gain the most benefit and be most effective in the simulation course. Coursework is targeted to community representatives, graduate students, and professionals seeking continuing education. Classes are offered in a condensed seminar format in a series of full-day sessions.
