News of Alumni: Patrick Jordan '97

Patrick Jordan ’97 returned to Gonzaga on Thursday, January 31 to speak to an AP Human Geography class about the lack of affordable housing in large cities such as Washington, D.C.

Patrick is Vice President of Enterprise Advisors for Enterprise Community Partners, Inc, a nonprofit whose mission is to create opportunity for low- and moderate-income people through affordable housing. A former Math and Physics teacher at Gonzaga, Patrick spoke with students about the challenges and opportunities involved in urban planning and how history and policy impact the lives of those in their community and neighborhoods nearby.

“A large part of my work and the work of other urban planners is ensuring that a person’s Zip code doesn’t dictate the opportunities they are afforded in life,” said Patrick.

Thank you for coming back to Gonzaga to share your insights with current students, Patrick!
