Fluidity or Mobility? Exploring Asymmetry in Race and Status Transitions with Linked Census Data
This one week residency by visiting speaker Prof. Dennis Culhane of the University of Pennsylvania is designed to galvanize transdisciplinary research and training in response to the homelessness crisis. In Los Angeles County, more than $1 billion in annual expenditures fund strategies to combat the homelessness and housing crisis. This is a critical moment for the UCLA research community to support policymakers with rigorous research to inform and evaluate these massive investments, including Measures H and HHH, while fulfilling our commitment to the public good.
Spring 2018 symposium on "Designing Health Communities," hosted by the Center for Occupational & Environmental Health to further develop and reinforce the nascent relationship between the public health and urban planning disciplines, advance the practice of preventing injury and disease caused by the built environment, and support the MPH/MURP joint-degree program.
