Class Description:
This Capstone project will partner with Hennepin County's Office to End Homelessness to help them to develop programs and services for homeless families and children. The project will consist of two separate projects. One group will work with current staff at shelters that serve young families to develop and implement a qualitative survey of young children in homeless shelters. This survey will inform current initiatives to improve services for young families with children. Students working on this project will develop skills in program evaluation and qualitative survey methodologies. A second group will use individual level administrative data to investigate the linkages between time limits and use of services among homeless families. In particular, they will investigate whether families who have reached the 60 month time limit on MFIP are more likely to enter shelters, and whether they also receive fewer services such as child care support. Students working on this project will develop skills in program evaluation and the statistical analysis of complex administrative data sources. Both teams will work separately, but will share preliminary results with each other, and will offer feedback to each other to improve the quality of the final products.

Class Description:
Minneapolis and St. Paul and our surrounding suburbs and exurbs are places that, like most in America, reflect a history of policy making that exacerbated rather than ameliorated the challenges faced by poor people of color. Policies which subsidized white flight from certain communities and restricted low-income people and people of color's access to others. Because race played such a distinct role in shaping our neighborhoods and region, it must continue to be a central consideration for our community development efforts. This capstone will be partnering with community-based organizations or city departments rooted in communities of color and low-income communities in Minneapolis and St. Paul. Using the lens of racial, social and economic equity, students will be working with the clients who are working to transform high-poverty communities into high-opportunity communities. pPlaces that provide all the resources people need to thrive, including employment, job training, good schools,safe streets, parks, healthy food retailers, transportation, and affordable high-quality housing.

    Class Description:

    State and local actions can be decisive in shaping the way an area's economy adjusts to the competitive world economy. This course will present a comprehensive overview of state and local economic and community development as it relates to transportation planning and the processes involved in developing a broadly conceived strategies. The topic for the Spring 2016 capstone workshop will be "Effective Transportation Planning to Enhance Community and Economic Development." Teams of Humphrey School graduate students will work with community clients in the Twin Cities to investigate a variety of issues dealing with transportation and land use. The focus will be on breaking down planning silos and increase opportunities for economic and community development. There are two clients identified for this course: Metro Transit's TOD Office and Ramsey County's Economic Development Department. Descriptions of both projects are below:

    mso-bidi-">Client: Metro Transit TOD Office

    The project will include collection, categorization, and visualization of existing land dedicated to people, buildings, and cars along high frequency transit corridors and within their respective communities. Using this people/buildings/cars metric, students will be asked to create original research on the value of TOD and financial benefits of prioritizing land for people and buildings over cars. Finally, the project will include the opportunity to apply the metric and evaluation standards to one or more economic development centers within Ramsey County. This site analysis will include assessment of the site's potential for growth, change, and TOD through modifications in parking supply and urban design in the area. Students will have the opportunity to define the study area and methodology in partnership with Metro Transit and Ramsey County in the beginning stages of the project.

    mso-bidi-">Client: Ramsey County Community and Economic Development

    The early work of ARC reinforced that the growth and prosperity of the County will come from urban and suburban centers. Substantial investments have been made in urban corridors, such as the Green Line LRT and A-Line BRT. ARC identified centers predominately in suburban Ramsey County. Some are located along major transit corridors, however several of them are not.

    This project sets out to better understand these important locations including the defining characteristics that have made these sites a center for the community. Students are invited to develop future scenarios for these centers and test their performance through existing and/or student-developed metrics. Students will explore implementation of the development alternatives including the actors and the actions (public and private sector) that are needed to achieve optimal outcomes.
