Founded in 2010, the Urban Research-Based Action Network (URBAN) seeks to forge relationships between academics and community-based practitioners, break down silos among academic disciplines and issue areas, and create mechanisms to support community engaged scholars at all steps of their careers. URBAN’s work is rooted in critical approaches to community-based research and a commitment to advancing movements for justice and liberation. The newest node of URBAN, URBAN UT has a mission to build "a network of scholars, organizers, educators, activists, and artists to advance critical, action-oriented research for social justice."
