Join the Urban Collaborators Resource Team

The UC Resource Team consists of MSU faculty from several departments and schools and MSU Extension professionals representing all four programmatic institutes. The team engages in multidisciplinary, community focused and community engaged research, outreach and student engagement. Through the integration of all three prongs of the MSU mission, the team focuses on promoting healthy and sustainable communities within Michigan’s “Legacy Cities” – Detroit, Grand Rapids, Warren, Lansing, Flint, Kalamazoo, Pontiac and Saginaw – through applied, practical and neighborhood-based solutions.
