Institute for Urban Research

The Institute for Urban Research at SIUE is dedicated to the investigation of problems and issues that affect the quality of life of those who live and work in urban or metropolitan areas - issues that are important to the region but that also have implications for the nation as a whole. The fundamental objective of the Institute is to create and test paradigms and programs that will help federal, state, and local agencies combat chronic urban problems in Southwest Illinois, especially the Metro East portion of the region.
