Founded in the Fall of 1987, the Center for Urban Studies was established to help find solutions to the problems facing central cities and their metropolitan regions. 

Its mission is to 
(1) create a body of knowledge to use in attacking urban problems and conditions facing blacks, Latinos, Asians, Native Americans, women, and low-wage white workers, 

(2) initiate public service projects that test theoretical ideas about community and economic development in the real-world, and 

(3) produce planners/urban managers who are sensitive to the needs of blacks, Latinos, Asians, Native Americans, women and low-wage white workers.
