Large institutions play vital roles in their neighborhoods and the city at large, tending to stabilize their surrounding communities, provide major employment and other opportunities, and draw large crowds. At times, they are revered for bettering long-term community welfare, and, at other times, disliked because of their capacity for overwhelming neighborhoods or instigating other unwelcomed changes. This panel discusses whether neighborhoods with entrenched institutions behave differently than those without? What community engagement strategies help to make institutions agents of positive change to their host neighborhoods?
