John S. Adams

Geography Professor Emeritus John S. Adams, has made the world—from Minneapolis neighborhoods to Eastern European cities—his classroom. Though he has extensive experience traveling and working internationally, the core of his research and teaching is the American city. His interest is in how cities are linked to regional, national, and international economies and how they marshal social, physical, and political forces to produce positive outcomes for the people who live in them. Though John has published more than 100 articles, books, and reports in his career, his greatest legacy takes form in the contributions his students are making in the public and private sectors. These students are having a positive impact in their communities by applying the principles learned in John’s classes –a distinctive blend of entrepreneurial spirit, competitive efficiency and corporate social responsibility. Cities are complex systems and through John’s knowledgeable lens we see deeper into our own.
