Center for the Study of Los Angeles: understanding the urban experience

February 25, 2015

Focused on undergraduate education, the Center uses Los Angeles as a laboratory for understanding the urban experience. Among its projects are:

    • 1) the development of a Research Collection which documents the development of Los Angeles, particularly since 1900;

 

    • 2) an Institute for Leadership Studies which coordinates student internships focused on public service;

 

    • 3) a Lecture Series which brings to the campus Los Angeles leaders in politics, ethnic relations, real estate development, and education;

 

    4) a Community Studies Program which conducts opinion polls on such issues as city charter reform, local ballot initiatives, public expenditure for sports, and neighborhood needs assessments.
