Transdisciplinary Homelessness Research: Measure H and Beyond

This one week residency by visiting speaker Prof. Dennis Culhane of the University of Pennsylvania is designed to galvanize transdisciplinary research and training in response to the homelessness crisis. In Los Angeles County, more than $1 billion in annual expenditures fund strategies to combat the homelessness and housing crisis. This is a critical moment for the UCLA research community to support policymakers with rigorous research to inform and evaluate these massive investments, including Measures H and HHH, while fulfilling our commitment to the public good. By bringing together so many dynamic sources of academic expertise at UCLA - catalyzed by Prof. Culhane's influence, passion, and immersion in the field - UCLA can begin a productive dialogue with larger local institutions already involved in implementing Measure H, affordable housing, and homelessness prevention efforts.
