Student with bakery mural in Detroit


SST, one course at a time

Economic and social forces over the last 50 years have strongly and often
negatively affected the health of cities across the Midwest (hence the
term, Rust Belt). But people are remarkably creative and adaptable in
such situations, and they are generating new economies and healthy
cultures in many places. This course will provide students with ways
to notice, understand, and live within these patterns of resilience and
restoration. A key part of the course will be an immersive trip to Detroit,
MI, during mid-term break to see these patterns in action.
