Administrative history

The Center for Urban and Regional Studies was established in the mid-1960s as a way to combine resources in a coodinated  interdisciplinary center for research in the study and resolution of problems in urban and environmental problems. It also supported an academic program offering a master's degree.  Because of lack of funding, the Center ceased operations in 1975, except for the academic studies aspect which continued to function independently.
