In this internship, students are academic-participants in a project exploring ways communities work to address conflicts and concerns regarding housing issues and the ways by which they attempt to resolve them.
Students selected for this internship will work in the organization, learn the role that the organization plays in community life and explore its role in dealing with issues of housing in the community. In the academic component of the internship, students enroll in ISP 392. This course focuses on how communities work to address local problems and develop means to resolve them by considering how government, not for profits, and landlords/developers negotiate community based housing issues on a local level.
