In the classroom and on the streets, students learn how the city has evolved on issues ranging from justice to geography.  The course  "Reinventing (and Reimagining) Boston: The Changing American City" taught by Robert J. Sampson and David Luberoff uses Boston as a case study of urban change, examining economic inequality, political governance, crime, and race, but its lessons are just as relevant to other cities in the United States, and around the world, that have become models of urban renaissance.
