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:

Growing Partnerships: An Overview of St. Paul's East Side COPC.

Poupart, John and Frederick W. Smith

Begun in 1998 with funding from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), the East Side Community Outreach Partnership Center (COPC) is an example of both the federal government's and higher education's renewed interest in locally driven community development. This article explains the origin of HUD's national COPC program, offers a brief history of the East Side community in St. Paul, discusses the creation of the East Side COPC, and provides an overview of the results of this collaborative effort. This article is part of a special issue of the CURA Reporter devoted to the East Side COPC program.
