CURL’s community partnerships featured in July 2015 Melbourne Australia Jesuit Higher Education conference. At this conference leaders of Jesuit higher education institutions from around the world spent three days discussing current collaborative projects and seeking future opportunities.
Congratulations to CURL Graduate Fellow Catherine Gillis who just received a Research Award from the Horowitz Foundation for her ongoing work on the Detroit land bank and urban redevelopment in that city.
CURL’s past research on what produces stable racially, ethnically, and economically diverse communities is of renewed interest to policy makers following the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development’s new rules aimed at addressing persistent segregation in America’s cities.
In honor of Kale Williams and his career as a social justice advocate and scholar-in-residence, CURL is leading an effort to endow the Kale Williams Scholarship Fund. The fund will support continued commitment by future generations of students to his work and ideals.
In partnership with the Washington DC-based Poverty & Race Research Action Council and the Metropolitan Milwaukee Fair Housing Council, CURL released a national report, Take a Chance on Me: A Review of the Milwaukee County Security Deposit Assistance Program in January 2015.
