By Tom McLaughlin

adamsThe Center for Urban Research and Education (CURE) at Rutgers University–Camden will host a seminar exploring the leadership makeup of major nonprofit institutions driving economic and physical redevelopment of Central Philadelphia, from 12:15 p.m. to 1:30 p.m. Friday, Jan. 29.

The seminar, which is free and open to the public, will be held in the faculty lounge on the third floor of Armitage Hall, located on Fifth Street, between Cooper Street and the Benjamin Franklin Bridge on the Rutgers–Camden campus.

For further information or to register, contact CURE Associate Director Natasha Fletcher at or (856) 225-6797.

Carolyn Adams, a professor of geography and urban studies at Temple University and author of the new book From the Outside In, will address the implications of assigning substantial power over the city’s future to nonprofit institutions whose governing boards are dominated by residents of the suburbs. Following Adams’ talk, copies of her book will be available to purchase and for her to sign.

Founded in 2001, the Center for Urban Research and Education at Rutgers University–Camden encourages, facilitates, and promotes research on urban issues by Rutgers–Camden faculty, students, and their collaborators around the nation. The research center’s monthly seminars provide CURE affiliates, students, faculty, and community members opportunities to learn about cutting-edge research and initiatives from scholars, community activists, and others engaged in urban research and/or related scholarship.
