Minnesota Univ., Minneapolis. Center for Urban and Regional Affairs.
This collection describes over 340 projects in which the Center for Urban and Regional Affairs (CURA) at the University of Minnesota (Minneapolis) has played a role in the past two years. The CURA offers a program of research and outreach on urban problems, which brings the resources of the university to bear on the problems of urban communities. The projects described in this publication are large and small; some involve research (basic and applied), some are primarily technical assistance. Many projects were faculty research efforts while others were graduate student projects. Most projects were done in cooperation with communities, agencies, or other state organizations. The project descriptions are grouped under the following subjects: (1) community and neighborhood studies; (2) economic development and employment; (3) education; (4) environment and energy; (5) housing; (6) human services; (7) land use and population; (7) minorities and disadvantaged; (8) policy and government reform; and (9) special programs. A map of project sites shows the program distribution across the state. (JB)
