This Week's Hot MetroTrends Topics

While D.C. shuddered in Tuesday’s earthquake, Urban Institute scholars were hard at work on their latest blogs:

  • Erwin de Leon features a disputed initiative in Maryland offering in-state tuition eligibility to undocumented youth.
  • Maria Jackson highlights “hybrid work”— where art intersects with community development, education, health, and the environment.
  • Margery Turner argues that reversing residential segregation is just as important as reducing the budget deficit.
  • Three more college students in the Urban Institute’s Academy for Public Policy Analysis and Research define urban challenges they’re investigating.

Does our research address the urban policy challenges you care about?  If so, please pass our MetroTrends blog along to friends and colleagues. And come back next week!



As an organization, the Urban Institute does not take positions on issues. Experts are independent and empowered to share their evidence-based views and recommendations shaped by research.
