By Alison Karfeld posted 9 days ago


On April 30, RUDC hosted an AIAU course entitled, "Equitable Communities Through Inclusive Urban Development."

Vanessa Morrison from the Christopher C. Gibbs College of Architecture, The University of Oklahoma  and Dana McKinney White from the Harvard University Graduate School of Design presented aspects of their work addressing underserved communities. 

Highlighted projects from Oklahoma City and Los Angeles drew parallels in establishing facilities and comprehensive relationships. Each focused on neighborhood engagement, culture, connectivity, civic investment, and outreach to those experiencing homelessness.  

Moderated by RUDC member Rex Cabaniss, the program, this course will be available on-demand via AIAU in the coming weeks.
