This colloquy invites open discussion on the challenges of initiating and maintaining interdisciplinary urban studies programs. How are curricular demands that involve required courses in other departments maintained? What strategies are there for improving relationships with other academic units? In an era of budget cuts and limited resources, how are interdisciplinary programs making the argument for their necessity?

I am passionate about professional local government management and the potential of its application to other countries, respecting their traditions, history, and political culture. I am also less passionate about the Chicago Cubs
