TEACHING

Since 2007, I have been teaching a graduate level course called “Private Sector Development” (PA-5221) at the Humphrey School of Public Affairs at the University of Minnesota. The course attracts Humphrey students — urban planning and public policy majors — as well as architects, landscape architects, and historic preservation students from the College of Design and MBA candidates from the Carlson School of Management.
