Title: Student-Led Social Infrastructure for a Healthy Town and Gown
Speakers: Jack Iffert, B.S. Civil Engineering
Frans Padt, Ph.D
About: Social infrastructure can be places or services, or a combination of the two that bring people together to foster a healthy, civic community. From libraries to athletic fields, social infrastructure comes in a variety of forms. This discussion is focused on social infrastructure that brings together the Penn State and State College communities, with a goal of addressing the question: How can students build social infrastructure to facilitate healthy connections between town and gown?
By designing social infrastructure, students can gain closer connections with community members, thereby creating more welcoming and safe spaces for more members of the Penn State and State College Communities.
