Center for Urban and Regional Excellence

The Center for Urban and Regional Excellence at Indiana University Northwest engages the University and the community in the creation of positive, sustainable and impactful programs and initiatives.  CURE works collaboratively with organizations in all sectors to promote continued learning, solution-based interaction and mutually-beneficial partnerships in our communities.  

The center has four goals: These goals are 1) to facilitate the institutionalization of community engagement and engaged scholarship on the IU Northwest campus, 2) to support preparation for and submission of the campus application for the 2020 Carnegie classification for Community Engagement, 3) to provide the community with opportunities to engage with the university through focused community outreach and education, 4) to assists the campus in strengthening existing and increase future mutually beneficial community-university partnerships that result in authentic collaborative relationships.

CURE meets these goals by collaborating with external and internal partners in the design, implementation and evaluation of community-based research, teaching and service initiatives.
