Urban Policy Initiatives

"But I want to focus for one moment this evening on the third word of our name—not 'University,' not 'Chicago,' but 'of'—because this university I have returned to lead is indeed a university of Chicago."

As Deputy Mayor for Economic Development and Rebuilding for the City of New York, Dan Doctoroff, JD'84, helped lead one of the city’s most dramatic economic resurgences following the attacks of 9/11. 

Mr. Doctoroff will recount his experience leading the development and implementation of a five-borough economic development strategy that included the most ambitious land-use transformation in the city’s modern history; the largest affordable housing program ever launched by an American city; and much more.
