Why We're Here

At CURes, we strive to increase LMU’s effectiveness as a resource to neighborhood stakeholders and government entities by engaging local communities.  In particular, we emphasize linking LMU and its partners to neighborhoods that have been historically underserved. Our work fosters the philosophy of environmental justice – local communities making local decisions. We believe this is the most effective process for creating resilient cities.  Some of our general community services include operating Ballona Discovery Park, leading a suite of school science programs and advancing research projects focused on transforming the urban ecosystems around us.
