Here’s what some of our Fellows have been up to recently:
- Amy Hillier has been named the recipient of the 2013 Excellence in Teaching Award for Standing Faculty in the School of Social Policy & Practice (SP2).
- Charles Branas has written an opinion piece for Penn IUR about transforming vacant lots: “Creating vibrant, livable spaces, particularly in areas suffering from urban decline, requires that city planners, public health experts and engineers work together to create large-scale and sustainable place-based programs.”
- Dennis Culhane organized an International Homelessness Research Conference hosted by Penn. A writeup of the event can be found on Newsworks.org.
- Also on Newsworks, Rosemary Frasso comments on declining teen birth rates.
