Located in Cleveland, it makes sense that Case Western Reserve University would have a dedicated research agenda to address questions of both urban poverty and social change and their interactions. In their work, the staff members of the Center on Urban Poverty and Social Change use the city of Cleveland itself as a study area, both to illuminate context-specific issues and challenges, as a vehicle for developing a broader understanding of these issues across the United States. The group's site is divided into four primary areas dealing with research, publications, education and outreach. By browsing through the research area, visitors can learn about the group's current research projects, and as a nice organizational feature, may move to directly download relevant reports and working papers that have been produced from each project. For individuals interested in the Cleveland area specifically, there is the CAN DO section, which provides access to data describing Cleveland's neighborhoods and the suburban municipalities throughout Cuyahoga County. Overall, the site is both a fine source of information on important research in these topical areas, and a model of how research centers can support both practical and scholarly endeavors in urban areas.
