Urban Communities Reimagined – A Kettering Foundation Project

The “Urban Communities Reimagined” project report is a culmination of 18 months of working across North Central and Western regions of the United States in a spirit of diverse collaboration representing seven large urban cities. Funding support from the Kettering Foundation created space for seven Land Grant University state teams to participate in a research exchange to learn more about what people in urban communities’ view as top priorities. Using tenants of the “Ecology of Democracy” state teams tested what happens in a community’s political life when citizen-centered democratic practices are used to carry out routine Cooperative Extension community development work.
