Center for Community and Regional Research (CCRR)  [42]

Persistent link to this collection:

The primary focus of the Center for Community and Regional Research (CCRR) is community-based education at the University of Minnesota Duluth, providing faculty and students in the social and natural sciences and related fields the opportunity to work with local and regional community organizations. With this focus, students apply research skills and principles of social engagement and analysis, UMD faculty receive funding for projects in which they apply their expert knowledge and skills in a real-world local context, and local organizations, communities and agencies benefit through research on issues central to them. CCRR is a unit of the College of Liberal Arts (CLA) at UMD. CLA enables the Center to better link with other research and outreach initiatives in the College, and at UMD, therefore creating greater and farther reaching opportunities for students, faculty and communities.

Note: CCRR became inactive in the mid-2010s due to budget cuts, which affected the Center's funding from the Center for Urban and Regional Affairs.
