Information Session: City Lab Course
Tuesday, May 3 at 6:30 p.m.

3307 M Street campus

RSVP to Christina Roberts at cdr44@georgetown.edu


You're invited to an information session on the SCS City Lab Course, the first initiative to come out of the partnership between Georgetown University’s School of Continuing Studies (SCS) and Spire (a project of the Geneva Area Recreational, Educational and Athletic Trust). City Lab also represents the first SCS school-wide course, truly interdisciplinary in approach and scope. The first city to engage with and benefit from this course will be Geneva, Ohio beginning fall 2011.

The City Lab class will meet on Thursdays this fall from 6:30 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. The course will include three trips to the Spire facilities in Geneva, Ohio (spireinstitute.org/facilities), but students do not need to make every trip. Travel times are flexible and will be set once the schedules of the fall 2011 City Lab course students are known. All travel fees will be paid for; students will incur no additional costs. All SCS academic programs will allow the City Lab course to count as credit toward your degree.

City Lab is an educational course where students, faculty, and professional partners work in tandem with a city’s leaders to solve real-world problems at an urban and metropolitan scale. The course offers a Jesuit-inspired clinical experience consistent with the School of Continuing Studies’ commitment to applied studies. Georgetown’s traditional strengths in curriculum and faculty will fortify the clinical experience.

City Lab will include trips to Geneva, Ohio throughout the course of the planning program in addition to a final capstone experience. City Lab is where both theory and practice are integrated and where generalists and specialists work together. Since most urban issues take time to identify, study, and analyze, City Lab provides an opportunity to develop a long-term relationship with a city to tackle multiple urban challenges and planning projects that may be intertwined and interrelated. City Lab will serve as a true urban laboratory whereby the city will benefit from the entire resources of the university – business, law, real estate, sociology, and history among others. It offers the opportunity for students, faculty, and design professionals to collaborate and work together.
