Eric Dueweke is a Lecturer in the Urban and Regional Planning Program at the Taubman College. He teaches the Integrative Field Experience ("capstone") course to second-year Masters of Urban Planning students. The capstone is a planning studio course that works on a real-world project with a nonprofit or local government partner. Several of Dueweke's recent capstone projects address land banking and vacant property issues in Detroit or Flint. In addition to negotiating projects with capstone clients, he serves as a liaison to practicing planners, especially from the nonprofit sector, in Detroit and statewide.
He is a member of the Board of Directors of the Michigan Association of Planning, as well as several community based organizations in Detroit. Prior to coming to UM in 2002, Dueweke worked for over 20 years with Detroit nonprofits in the fields of arts, special events and community development.
