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:

Supporting Diversity in Community Development through the Krusell Fellowship.

Charles Krusell was a pillar in the Twin Cities development community who left an indelible mark on every effort he undertook. He was a champion for public housing and ardent advocate for urban renewal in the neighborhoods that needed it most. Krusell founded the Greater Metropolitan Housing Corporation to address the critical need for affordable housing in the Twin Cities. Named in his honor, the Charles R. Krusell Fellowship in Community Development is designed to prepare students of color in the University of Minnesota Master’s of Urban and Regional Planning and Master’s of Public Policy programs to be Minnesota’s next leaders and change makers in community development.

The three narratives from former Krusell fellows that follow illustrate how the program makes academic work more meaningful, enables fellows to be more purposeful in designing their academic program, teaches practical skills, and builds relationships and networks with professionals in the field.
