Other Occasional CLOSUP Seminars
CLOSUP has sponsored a number of smaller research programs, including occasional seminars (in addition to the Land Use Policy Seminar) presented by both University of Michigan researchers and visiting scholars from other institutions. The seminars bring together researchers to present works in progress related to various policy issues at the state and/or local level. The purpose of the seminars is to provide a informal forum for scholars to present their research to a broader audience than their own departmental seminars would lend.
In addition to the the Land Use Policy Seminar, CLOSUP has presented the following other seminars to date:
