Through teaching, research and public service programs, the College of Urban Development (CUD) is working toward solving the social problems resulting from rapid and haphazard growth of American cities. The Center for Urban Affairs (CUS) provided the starting place. In April 1972 an instructional program was authorized: the CUA staff became the faculty and administration of CUD. In September 1973, CUD opened its doors to students for the first time. Three hundred fifty-one students enrolled in urban development and related courses. Outreach and public service activities of the college are designed to achieve the following primary objectives: (1) Combine theoretical classroom instruction with applied practical experience to effectively train individuals, identify and resolve urban problems. (2) Provide services to communities and agencies using the skills and resources of the CUD faculty, staff and students. Students played an active and important role during CUD's first year. Enthusiastic students participated in academic governance, curriculum development and other extracurricular activities. During the past year, CUD faculty members have engaged in a broad spectrum of research related to improving the quality of urban life and alleviating racial and ethnic prejudice. (Author/JM)
