David Dante Troutt
Founding Director, Center on Law in Metropolitan Equity (CLiME)
School of Law
In 2013, David Dante Troutt founded the Center on Law in Metropolitan Equity to provide a research resource for students and the public interested in the growing challenges of municipalities and families trying to sustain middle-class outcomes amid growing fiscal constraints and rapid demographic change. A key feature of his writing and teaching about the intersections of race, class and place concerns identifying blind spots in conventional analyses of spatially determined opportunity through structuralist and interdisciplinary analysis.
