Wrapping up the Anchor Institutions Course

For more information on anchor institutions, please visit the Talloires Network website. The course concluded with presentations of student research projects. Topics included an analysis of Business Improvement Districts in Boston and Tokyo, incorporating a new anchor institution in rural Florida, studying anchor districts such as the Boston Medical and Scientific Community Organization (MASCO), African-American grocery stores as anchors, Northeastern University’s Boston Housing Authority scholarship program, and limitations in access to higher education.  Much of this research will become thesis projects in future semesters.
