The 2012 UIC Urban Forum "Metropolitan Resilience in a Time of Economic Turmoil"
On December 6, 2012, top federal, state, and municipal officials alongside
private-sector and community leaders gathered for the 2012 UIC Urban
Forum to discuss the issues metropolitan areas have been experiencing
during these tough economic times, their responses, and strategies to
address those challenges and improve quality of life. Over 800 registered
for the event and at least 500 were there at any one time, many choosing
to remain the entire day. Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood ended the
day with an encouraging vision of the future of urban transportation and was
most responsive to the audience engagement.
The entire event is archived by UIC CUPPA partner, Chicago Public Radio
