One of the cornerstones of sustainability is socialcultural vibrancy. After the City of Dubuque adopted its Sustainable Dubuque plan, city leaders wanted to explore poverty so sustainable initiatives could be provided that addressed the needs f the poor in an informed and efficient manner. Students researched who is in poverty and where they lived; identified barriers to getting out of poverty; and developed recommendations for best practices in anti-poverty initiatives.
