The Center's vision is to provide leadership for a just, sustainable, and flourishing urban future.


The Center for Urban Engagement exists to promote just, sustainable, and flourishing urban communities through the academic study of cities and transformational experiences of urban life.

Core Values

CUE programs are characterized by academic rigor, experiential learning, global engagement, and theological integration.

In addition to teaching about cities and urban life, we provide students with opportunities to learn in community, build intercultural knowledge and skills, and pursue leadership development, spiritual formation, and vocational discernment.
