CURA is pleased to announce the recipients of this year′s Fesler-Lampert Chair in Urban and Regional Affairs and Faculty Interactive Research Program Award

Elizabeth Wrigley-Field (College of Liberal Arts, Department of Sociology, Minnesota Population Center, Institute for Social Research and Data Innovation) is the 2023-2023 Fesler-Lampert Chair in Urban and Regional Affairs with this research project, How racial stratification and neighborhood socioeconomic deprivation intersect in Minnesota’s mortality.

Additionally, two Faculty Interactive Research Program proposals were funded:

CURA supports applied research projects by faculty that actively involve community partners in the research process. These programs provide grants, technical assistance, or other support for applied faculty research projects. The Faculty Interactive Research Program supports interactive public policy research between University of Minnesota faculty and community organizations or government agencies in Minnesota. The Fesler-Lampert Chair in Urban and Regional Affairs supports the work of a University of Minnesota faculty member on a project related to urban and regional affairs in Minnesota.

The research from these projects will be published in The CURA Reporter.
