CET New Greensboro Tour

Doing is Believing: The New Greensboro Tour
Karrie Manson’s FYE class on tour, November 2013. Jim Keith came along!
Talking about social conditions in the classroom and seeing and visiting them are two different experiences.

The New Greensboro Tour closely reflects the changing demographics of our region. We start with an overview of demographic trends through 2030 and 2040 and visit some of our Bonner Center community sites and associated neighborhoods and centers.

We like to make tours small — about 8 people, but can also do large class tours. Contact us for details.
