Patricia Wilson - Making a Difference - The Art of Community Engagement

Patricia A. Wilson,  professor at the  University of Texas, has worked for over thirty years in community development, mostly in Latin America, exploring what it is that makes some aid projects successful and some not.   She will present two stories from her most recent book that addresses that question:  The Heart of Community Engagement:  Stories from Across the Globe (Routledge, 2019). 240 pp.).

Dr. Patricia A. Wilson, a senior professor in the U.T. Graduate Program in Community and Regional Planning, teaches international community development.  Her extensive field research in community-based change processes has included Latin America, South Africa, India, and the U.S.  Dr. Wilson holds a B.A. (with honors in Economics) from Stanford and a Master’s and Ph.D. In regional planning from Cornell.
