Thomas Conroy (Urban Studies) recently hosted a public forum titled “Urban Planning with the People” at the Worcester Public Library. The interactive presentation and discussion explored ways that cities such as Worcester can include citizens in early stages and throughout the urban planning process.

Conroy’s community-engaged scholarship focuses on the idea of urban exclusion historically and contemporarily, and ways to redress it. He has recently co-authored “In Search of Opportunity: Latino Men’s Path to Post-Secondary Education in Urban Massachusetts” and is a co-creator of the CitySpeak Initiative, a research- and arts-based approach to urban planning and community development.
