Digital Ethnography for Sustainable Development in Indiana, PA

The 2013 ATP project at IUP partnered students with the Community Development Committee of the Borough Council of Indiana, PA. The Community Development Committee (a sub-group of Borough Council elected representatives) is responsible for community and economic development initiatives and serves as a liaison between the Borough and other significant community stakeholders, including IUP, the Chamber of Commerce, and nonprofit community development groups such Downtown Indiana and Welcome to Indiana. The central focus of this project was to create an ethnographic walking tour of Indiana, which highlights the unique history and diverse identity of the community, enhances the walkable and bikeable nature of the town, and welcomes students and their families into the community.
