When Marc Norman left the world of corporate finance to run UPSTATE, a Center for Design Research and Real Estate at Syracuse University School of Architecture, he turned for guidance to people running other community design centers. He found many of them had been Loeb fellows. Norman knows the housing crisis isn’t just a matter of creating more units and that job creation, community services and supportive services are all essential to reducing inequality and promoting economic development and social justice. He’s banking that the networks and resources of the Fellowship will help him move the needle on these goals, as he relates in the first of our 2014-15 Loeb Video Profiles.
The Loeb Fellowship initiated the Video Profiles project in 2012 to enable current Loeb Fellows to tell their stories, what motivates them and how the Fellowship has been meaningful for their work. Maggie Janik, GSD Multimedia Producer, and Joanne Nerenberg, Loeb Affiliate ‘12, are directing the project.
