Due to changes unfolding in urban demographics, along with continuing social and economic problems in many cities, there is a growing need for a cadre of community-based leaders to work in, and on behalf of, communities of color.

The Center for Strategic Urban Community Leadership represents a pathbreaking model that suggests new ways of pursuing effective training for multiracial and multi-ethnic collaboration while strengthening and expanding the professional and organizational skills of the participants.
