CURA is pleased to announce the recipients of this year′s Faculty Interactive Research Program grants: 

University of Minnesota faculty are critical resources in exploring issues and concerns important to Minnesota, such as the criminal justice system, demography, state or local economic development, education, employment, energy, the environment, health, housing, state and local government, welfare and poverty, human and social services, transportation, or land use and development.

The Faculty Interactive Research Program (FIRP) encourages University faculty to carry out research projects that answer questions about these important regional issues, in partnership with community groups, agencies, or organizations in Minnesota. Awards are made annually during spring semester.

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