Our Programs

CURes supports a wide variety of research activities aimed at a better understanding of the biological and social structure and function of urban communities. Our goals are to enhance the public understanding of urban resilience as a tool for healthy neighborhoods, advance a vigorous program of research and education, and engage the public as critical stakeholders in urban policy and management.

The Nature of Our Research

2) Our research involves LMU faculty, grad students and undergraduates.

3) Our research provides long-term study opportunities suitable for integration into lab courses and community management plans.
