December 2019 DEI SPOTLIGHT

Name: Eric Dueweke

Preferred Pronoun: He/Him/His 

Affiliation/Title: Lecturer IV in Urban and Regional Planning  

Degree(s): Bachelor of Arts, Master of Business Administration 

Home Country: United States 

Language(s) Spoken: English

Favorite book and why: The Origins of the Urban Crisis, by Thomas Sugrue, jump-started my career change into planning.

DEI Contribution/Highlight: For the past 17 Septembers, I’ve led a bus tour of Detroit as part of Orientation activities. Almost all of the Master of Urban and Regional Planning Capstone Studio courses I teach are designed to benefit low-income people of color.

Why is diversity, equity, and inclusion important to you? As a lifetime resident of a city whose population is 83% African American, I am reminded daily that our society still has a long way to go toward achieving social justice.
