Envisioning a More Equitable Bay Area: Academic Series Featuring Professor Karen Chapple '89GS

Join us for the launch of our Academic Speaker Series, a lecture and conversation with Dr. Karen Chapple '89GS at University of California, Berkeley. Dr. Chapple, who holds a BA in Urban Studies from Columbia, will delve into insights of housing in the Bay Area based on the Urban Displacement Project, a research portal examining patterns of residential, commercial, and industrial displacement, as well as policy and planning solutions.
