The CURA publications library is currently being digitized by the University of Minnesota Digital Conservancy. When the project is complete, the entire CURA publications library will be online and fully searchable. Unfortunately, during this process we are not able to honor individual requests for publications . Additionally, we no longer have physical copies of publications to send out.

New publications are digitized daily and the publications catalog on the CURA website is not automatically updated with links to scanned copies, so please search the CURA collection at the Digital Conservancy for the publications you are looking for:

Creating Democratic Spaces: Jane Addams School for Democracy.

Longo, Nicholas and John Wallace.

Jane Addams School for Democracy is a community-based education and action center located on St. Paul's West Side. A collaborative effort of neighborhood families and local colleges and universities, the school was created in 1996 as a democratic space designed to cultivate the talents, cultures, and interests of people from diverse backgrounds and traditions. This article reports on a recent qualitative evaluation of the school. Results suggest the school provides an enriching environment for all participants. The study also suggests that in order to create safe, democratic spaces, community members and students must be given the opportunity to develop consistent, ongoing, and multidimensional relationships.
