What a semester that was! As with Trinity, CUGS managed to cope with the unprecedented conditions of Fall 2020, and that meant several areas of programming went on – virtually – in an effective manner. The Global Vantage Points lecture series featured a set of excellent talks, and attendance via Zoom was above where it typically is for in-person seminars. The Cities Program, with two remote seminar classes, remained a lively forum for 14 outstanding first-year students. CUGS supported several terrific online events with the Connecticut World Affairs Council. The graduate certificate program in Urban Planning kicked off successfully and continues to attract more students, thanks in no small measure to instructors like Prof. Sean Fitzpatrick and Dr. Don Poland. The Urban Studies major is growing larger every month, with 17 seniors, a record-breaking 25 juniors, and already 9 sophomores making it the 10th-largst major at the college presently. Our Kelter Postdoctoral Fellow, Dr. Laura Delgado, successfully began her post-doc (virtually) with a terrific rendition of URST 301: Community Development Strategies.
