Professor Galster appointed Penn IUR scholar

Distinguished Professor George Galster in the Department of Urban Studies and Planning has been invited to be a scholar at the Penn Institute for Urban Research, a designation that honors and recognizes eminent scholars in the field of urbanism and important contributors to understanding our changing cities.

The invitation noted that Professor Galster's study of urban life will help the Institute deepen and diversify the multi-disciplinary knowledge that they seek to cultivate at Penn IUR.

Penn IUR is dedicated to an increased understanding of cities through cross-disciplinary research, instruction, and civic engagement. As the global human population becomes increasingly urban, understanding cities is vital to informed decision-making and public policy at the local, national, and international levels.

Penn IUR is dedicated to developing knowledge in three critical areas: innovative urban development strategies; building the sustainable and inclusive 21st-century city; and the role of anchor institutions in urban places. By providing a forum for collaborative scholarship and instruction, Penn IUR stimulates research and engages with the world of urban practitioners and policymakers.
