Congratulations to DUSP's PhD candidate John Arroyo on his 2017 American Association of Hispanics in Higher Education Fellowship

We are delighted to congratulate DUSP's PhD candidate John Arroyo on his 2017 American Association of Hispanics in Higher Education Fellowship!

At DUSP John's comparative research investigates the spatial implications of transnational Latinx migration in suburban new immigrant destinations. He explores how Mexican migrants transform the built environment of their host communities, and how municipal and regional planning institutions react to these ethnic demographic shifts through land use and urban design policies. In addition to his new fellowship, John is also a Ford Foundation Diversity Predoctoral Fellow and a Graduate Resident Tutor at Simmons Hall.
