Saint Mary's University Institute for Public Administration, Politics and Public Policy hosted a Community Conversation on Gentrification featuring a collection of San Antonio policy experts including Mayor Ivy Taylor; activist and former councilwoman María Antonietta Berriozábal and Christine Drennon, Ph.D. director of Trinity University's Urban Studies Program.
Former San Antonio Express-News columnist Cary Clack, who is now the mayor's communications director, moderated the panel discussion on Oct. 7, 2014.
St. Mary's University President Emeritus Charles L. Cotrell, Ph.D., Director of the Institute, said the Community Conversations are intended to be "informal, civil and interactive," and he characterized it as "a living room for St. Mary's University."
Drennon shared slides and research she had done with her students at Trinity, and Taylor, who is an adjunct lecturer at the University of Texas San Antonio in the Public Administration Department of the College of Public Policy, also included research from academic journals and national publications.
