2022 Imagining Community Symposium


Redlining to Resettlement: Students Navigate Partnership and Convening Conversations around Housing in Dayton

Document Type


Publication Date



The 2023 Cohort of Dayton Civic Scholars, an undergraduate student program, will map how they arrived at their capstone project topic, particularly influenced by the Undesign the Redline exhibit and the film Redlining: Mapping Inequality. Bringing together media from multiple sources, the students highlight the narratives that sparked their actions. Along with their research, they have partnered with community initiatives to challenge the legacy of redlining, advance resettlement programs and develop strategic visions. In the second half of the session, students will facilitate a conversation about the assets and challenges of housing in Dayton and facilitate activities to gather feedback on their project plan.

As they vision their project with partner organizations, the students seek to center on the attendees' experiences and perspectives. Welcoming residents, organizers, scholars and other stakeholders, this session seeks to develop a creative, inclusive vision.
