From our friends at the University of Detroit Mercy School of Law:
HUD: Past, Present, and Future
The University of Detroit Mercy School of Law seeks proposals from scholars, practitioners, and housing advocates interested in participating in its fall interdisciplinary symposium, entitled HUD’s Past, Present and Future (“Symposium”), which will take place over a two day period (with a third day being dedicated to educational outreach for the public) as follows: . . .
II. TWO-DAY ACADEMIC SYMPOSIUM: SCHEDULED ON MONDAY, NOVEMBER 13, 2017 AND TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 14, 2017
PURPOSE OF THE SYMPOSIUM
Since its inception in 1965, the United States Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) has been an integral part of affordable housing development and primary responsibility for developing sustainable communities across the country. While HUD’s role is clear, this seminal Symposium's purposes are to: 1) evaluate its impact and propose expansions or alternatives, if any, that will make it more effective in the future; and 2) for a time such as this, commit to use collective or interdisciplinary knowledge to enhance our nation. (“Goals”).
Ultimately, to comprehensively address this multi-dimensional topic, law professors and/or lawyers, sociologists, economists, elected officials, people from HUD, MSHDA, certified counseling agencies, the ecclesiastical community, financial institutions and diverse bar associations, among others from across the country, are invited to attend or participate. Specifically, participants will complete Power Point slides to make presentations at the Symposium, followed by article(s) which will be due on the date reflected below.2 As indicated in the attached Schedule B, the final panel discussion on the second day will focus exclusively on Michigan and how HUD's programs have impacted the region, generally, and Detroit, in particular.
