The Urban Equity Collaborative is inviting you for an Open House on Tuesday, October 3.

The Urban Equity Collaborative (UEC) is a University of Maryland initiative that employs an intersectional, multidisciplinary, collaborative approach to community-based research, action, and collective inquiry that upholds equitable university-community partnerships. Funded by UMD’s Grand Challenges Grants Program and housed within the School of Architecture, Planning and Preservation, UEC strengthens community-based institutions, leaders, and organizing around critical issues of urban inequality through community-based research and policy action.
