The University Metropolitan Consortium was established in 2006 to link the centers, programs, and faculty and staff at the University engaged in teaching, research, and outreach concerned with understanding metropolitan change and development.
The mission of the Consortium is to strengthen the University’s overall contribution to understanding metropolitan-urban-suburban issues by enhancing and extending the work of our existing programs and strengthening the University’s connections to those in the public, private, and nonprofit sectors who also work with these issues.
