      *OVERVIEW*
      CommUniverCity San Jose is a multisector team of faculty, community
      residents, community benefit organizations, and city agencies. It is a
      unique partnership between a neighborhood near the campus (community), San
      Jos� State (university), and the City of San Jos� (city) that focuses
      collective resources, knowledge, and expertise on priorities identified by
      residents. CommUniverCity�s work is especially critical after the demise
      of Redevelopment Agencies and San Jose�s Strong Neighborhoods Initiative.
      Fundamentally, CommUniverCity aims to improve neighborhoods �from the
      inside out�. Graduate urban planning students at SJSU help make this
      happen by engaging in service-learning projects led by established planning
      practitioners.

      This informative session will provide attendees with an overview of the
      community assessment and collaborative neighborhood planning techniques
      used by SJSU graduate urban planning student teams in the Spartan-Keyes
      community of central San Jose. You will learn about proven methods for
      engaging local residents in the planning process and how the graduate
      students served as remarkably effective �ambassadors� for contemporary
      urban planning in a service-learning context. Additionally, you will have
      the opportunity to meet some of the graduate students, their professors,
      Spartan-Keyes community leaders, and CommUniverCity staff members.

      You will leave the session with a clear understanding of how partnerships
      such as CommUniverCity function in the realm of neighborhood-level urban
      planning in an era of severe fiscal constraints. You will also have an
      opportunity to share your questions and ideas with talented urban planning
      students and established professionals in the field.
