Penn faculty were invited to the UURC mid-term review class which included presentations by the students on their research projects. Many of the faculty mentors were also present to discuss their experience in participating in the course. The UURC invited the participation of faculty from across the 12 schools to undertake research on a wide range of urban issues. Students from each of the University’s undergraduate schools were eligible to participate. The program included $2,000 of support for each faculty-student research project.
