Contact person: 

CURA is pleased to announce the competition for the 2013–2014 Fesler-Lampert Chair in Urban and Regional Affairs, and invites interested faculty from across the University of Minnesota to apply for this award.

The Fesler-Lampert Chair in Urban and Regional Affairs was established in 1999 through the vision and generosity of David and Elizabeth Fesler. It was created to recognize faculty members with a distinguished record of research and teaching related to matters of urban and regional significance who propose to use the resources of the Chair to undertake research/scholarly activities that will further this work on behalf of the University.

The endowment will generate approximately $40,000 to support, for one year, the research activities of a University of Minnesota faculty member for work on a project related to urban and regional affairs in Minnesota. Funds may be used for release time, research assistance, or other support for the project, and may be used for new projects or projects already under way.

The faculty member who is selected will be expected at the conclusion of the project to prepare a 3500-word manuscript for publication in the CURA Reporter, CURA’s quarterly report of faculty research.

Application materials for the 2013–2014 Fesler-Lampert Chair in Urban and Regional Affairs must be received by 4:30 pm on February 11, 2013.

The Fesler-Lampert nominating committee will review applications and forward its recommendations to the Dean of the Graduate School, who will make the appointment.
