The Student Experience

The School of Planning, Public Policy and Management (PPPM) is located in historic Hendricks Hall in the center of the University of Oregon campus in Eugene. PPPM is a strong and active community, where faculty and students engage with professionals and the community to research, learn, and take on important leadership roles.

Roderick Hall, MCRP, ’19, wants to build access to the community resources he didn’t have growing up in rural North Carolina.

“I’m from a small, predominately black town. Growing up, I didn’t have things like a community center,” Hall said, “that would expose me to a wider world.”

Now, as the director of organizing for Abundant Housing L.A., Hall is helping create access, educating L.A.’s citizens about how they can engage with local government, from neighborhood councils to housing commissions.
