Lowell Plan Public Matters provides a setting for experiential learning in the context of the City of Lowell. We focus on Lowell National Historical Park as we seek to examine, understand, and appreciate the City’s industrial past, the current cultural revitalization, and historic preservation efforts.
The following thematic areas will be explored:
Reinventing a New England City
Neighborhood Quality of Life
Health and Social Services
Role of Local Media
Civic Engagement in Action
Members will observe, define, analyze and practice leadership skills through a variety of tools, methods and activities. The course will encompass demonstration, lecture, video presentation, simulation, cooperative learning, class discussion, observation and analysis of Lowell-based case studies, interviews of community leaders, and field trips.
