Thirteen students from the Harvard Graduate School of Design (GSD) and the Harvard Kennedy School (HKS) are dedicating their summer to researching and working on a range of issues related to housing and community development, Harvard’s Joint Center for Housing Studies reports. From aging in place to green infrastructure and zoning laws, the fellows will tackle a number of obstacles impeding affordable and equitable housing development across the nation. 

Two Gramlich Fellows in Community and Economic Development will carry out research projects overseen by our Center and NeighborWorks America:

  • Aleks Czulak, a joint Master in Public Policy (MPP) and Master in Business Administration (MBA) student at HKS and MIT’s Sloan School of Management, will examine efforts to create healthy and equitable communities via partnerships that bring together community development organizations and health-care providers.
  • Haewon Ma, a Master in Design Studies (MDes) student at GSD, will research efforts by community development organizations to increase opportunities for older residents to age in their communities with a particular focus on locations that have historically been home to many immigrants.
