The purpose of this roundtable is to discuss Tennessee State University (TSU)’s initiative to affirmatively support U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD)’s strategic fair housing policy goals and provide paths to fair housing careers through the TSU Urban Studies curriculum. The discussion leaders are the investigators for a HUD grant supporting this initiative. This grant funds the first initiative of this type and its outcomes will be tracked over a number of years to identify successful strategies for (1) embedding fair housing education into higher education programs to educate future fair housing professionals; (2) providing multiple learning experiences that promote professional interests in housing and prepare graduates for fair housing-related careers; and (3) enhancing fair housing education through community collaboration.
