Institute of Urban and Regional Development (IURD)

Established in 1962, the University of California at Berkeley-based Institute of Urban and Regional Development (IURD) aims to advance knowledge and practice in ways that make cities and regions economically robust, socially inclusive, and environmentally resourceful.  To do so, it conducts collaborative, interdisciplinary research and practical work focused on revealing the dynamics of communities, cities, and regions and informing public policy.  Over the past several decades, it has developed close relationships with city, community, and other nonprofit organizations working in Oakland and West Oakland, and has raised more than four million dollars for collaborative projects with community-based organizations (including with EBALDC and the Unity Council) and public agencies in the City of Oakland.
