Daniel Costie


Daniel’s background is in community empowerment, urban development, and food security.  From 2007 to 2009, Daniel served in the United States Peace Corps working as a community development volunteer.  Shortly after, he received a Master’s of Arts in International Development from the School of International Service at American University.  For his capstone research, Daniel conducted a study comparing the urban agriculture movements of Havana, Cuba and Detroit, Michigan.  More specifically, Daniel examined how community participation and social capital shaped urban development in those cities. 



Daniel’s current academic interests involve studying the potential of policy actors to promote sustainable (urban) community development, and wishes to address issues of socio-economic inequality. | Physical Address: 1380 Lawrence St., Ste. 500  Denver, CO  80204 | Mailing Address: University of Colorado Denver, SPA, Campus Box 142, P.O.
