Discover how community is formed in the urban classroom that is America's eighth largest city: San Diego.
The Intersections LLC explores the physical and human elements that form community. San Diego's location on the border with Mexico provides a unique and international lens through which you can explore first-hand these complex and intriguing questions:
- How do people build and maintain communities?
- What roles do physical proximity, technology & mathematics, art & music and economics play in the development of urban communities?
- What happens when cultures clash, coexist and come together?
- How can immigrants gain a sense of belonging in their new communities?
I think the LLC experience helps create a community between students with similar and different interests. It has helped me find academic support among students with similar aspirations.
