Research Center to Host Seminar Examining Change in Philadelphia Neighborhoods

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAThe Center for Urban Research and Education (CURE) at Rutgers University–Camden will offer a free lecture addressing how Philadelphia neighborhoods experience and deal with social and economic change, at noon Friday, Nov. 14.

Angel Rodriguez, vice president of community economic development for Asociación Puertorriqueños En Marcha (APM), will discuss whether change is something done “to” the neighborhood, done “for” the neighborhood, or done “with” the neighborhood.

The talk, which is free of charge and open to the public, will be held in the faculty lounge on the third floor of Armitage Hall. Lunch will be served.

For further information, please contact CURE Associate Director Natasha Tursi at or (856) 225-6797.
