Welcome to the IUR at Morgan State University

The Institute for Urban Research is the primary social science research and training arm of Morgan State University. The Institute has a core staff of experienced researchers who seek to improve the response of governmental, non-governmental, private, and other institutions to the challenges of poverty, unemployment, poor health, truancy, and other urban and regional problems.

Dr. Raymond Winbush

“The quality of an urban university should be measured by its connection with the surrounding community and its positive impact on the quality of life of the communities’ residents.”
