Affiliated Faculty

CURL relies on faculty from a broad range of schools and disciplines in completing its work. The faculty listed below are connected to CURL through:

  • Research connected to CURL Faculty Fellowships
  • Service on the CURL Advisory Committee
  • Teaching the Urban Studies Seminar (which involves undergraduate students in CURL research projects)
  • Research as principle investigator on CURL projects
  • Advising/consulting on CURL team research projects
  • Advising CURL Graduate Research Fellows and CURL Undergraduate Fellows on their work on CURL research projects

The faculty pages of those involved at CURL in the past few years are linked below. Since most of our affiliated faculty are engaged in community-engaged work, this provides a visible measure of the scope of such work taking place in the university. For information purposes we have also included some past faculty fellows who have done research with CURL.
