RETUrN: Renewable Environment: Transforming Urban Neighborhoods ©
The learning community involves students taking a general science course and a social science or humanities course with a linked thematic focus, in this case the redevelopment of a local Superfund site. The faculty and students are working in partnership with the community to understand how a neighborhood can be reborn, meeting many challenges.
