Our urban-located land grant institution has long been committed to engaged research, teaching, and service. This paper describes efforts to articulate and implement a strategic urban land grant vision that places urban/metropolitan engagement at the center of our institution's "urban age" future. We describe intentional and broad-based efforts in human development, vital communities, and health areas that engage faculty and community partners in collaborative endeavors to resolve complex challenges that confront our urban core.
