Resources for those vulnerable to COVID-19
11: Urban Studies and Planning
David Birge -- firstname.lastname@example.org
Continuing research from the summer looking at how COVID is impacting vulnerable groups, the Leventhal Center for Advanced Urbanism is seeking students to fill three roles: website building, map making, and resource gathering. We are currently in the process of building a website to share our research. We need help with a few areas of functionality including: A) Creating responsive websites that work across device and allows the project to scale over the Fall and Spring as resources, mapping, and research expands; B) creating online exploratory maps that help reveal the spatial cofactors driving vulnerability to COVID mortality among specific groups and its indirect impacts on learning for young students; and, C) gathering, tagging, and organizing resources that are available to vulnerable groups across a broad spectrum of types including food, shelter, education, technology, etc. Within each of these mini-projects we are seeking students to dedicate 5-10 hours a week to help support and extend the expertise of the students already on the project.
