Congratulations to CURL Graduate Fellow Catherine Gillis who just received a Research Award from the Horowitz Foundation for her ongoing work on the Detroit land bank and urban redevelopment in that city.
In honor of Kale Williams and his career as a social justice advocate and scholar-in-residence, CURL is leading an effort to endow the Kale Williams Scholarship Fund. The fund will support continued commitment by future generations of students to his work and ideals.
Our Spring seminars start on Friday, January 16th. CURL Friday Morning Seminars are held regularly on Friday mornings from 10:30am until 12:00pm throughout the semester in the CURL Library (Cuneo Hall, 4th Floor).
In partnership with the Washington DC-based Poverty & Race Research Action Council and the Metropolitan Milwaukee Fair Housing Council, CURL released a national report, Take a Chance on Me: A Review of the Milwaukee County Security Deposit Assistance Program in January 2015.
Check out CURL's videos! Each video focuses on a different dimension of the work and activities of the Center for Urban Research and Learning including staff, student, and community partner perspectives. Sean Young, CURL Graduate Fellow, developed, created, and edited the videos.
