Urban Student Group

Formed by several University at Albany graduate students during the Fall of 1998, this group is an independent, peer-based organization dedicated to the study of urban issues.  The group comprises graduate students from a variety of disciplines, and holds informal meetings on a monthly basis. At these meetings, students present their own work, discuss urban-related issues, form collaborations, and exchange ideas. The Mumford Center provides support to the group by hosting outside speakers, urban excursions, and collaborative research projects—particularly those focused on locally based fieldwork.
