Dear Campus and Community,
The Center for Urban and Regional Excellence (CURE) extends our wishes for your good health and safety. This is a time of adjustment for all of us, but we want you to know that CURE continues to work to build partnerships between the campus and the community. At this time, the health and safety of our community is of highest priority. As a result, we are continually evaluating our programs and have made changes to face today’s challenges and prepare for tomorrow’s opportunities.
Below are the changes that we are implementing at this time:
- An expansion of our online presence to include a variety of non-credit, remote learning opportunities for all ages through the following programs:
- A shift from in-person meetings with partners to virtual meetings. If you have an in-person meeting scheduled with CURE in upcoming weeks, we will be contacting you with additional information.
- Face-to-face programming and meetings will resume once it is determined to be safe for all involved.
These changes are being made in accordance with IU Northwest and Indiana University policy. Please visit the main IU Northwest webpage for current information.
In addition to exploring our many online offerings, you can also stay engaged by visiting the Collaboratory to learn more about Community Engagement at IU Northwest. Through this online tool, you can discover the many connections we are making with our community partners. You can also learn more about how faculty, staff, students and the community come together to improve the quality of life in Northwest Indiana and beyond.
Finally, we welcome your inquiries for partnership. Complete the easy, online Community Partnership Request Form and tell us about your interest in partnering with CURE and IU Northwest in the future!
