  Welcome to the Center for Urban Progress


The Howard University Center for Urban Progress (CUP) is an interdisciplinary center made up of faculty, staff, and students that mobilizes the Howard University community to address critical local, national, and global urban issues through applied and community-based research, academic programs, technical assistance to public and private agencies, program evaluation, and demonstration projects.

We encourage you to browse through our website to find out more about who we are and what we do. If you have any questions about our past or present services or activities, we will be happy to speak with you.
