The SGCI is preparing a proposal to seek formal recognition as a permanent, university-wide research institute that is physically located at the UConn Hartford Campus. Below, you can find reports produced by the SGCI as a result of this process. For additional reference materials and other documents of interest, please visit our SGCI Reference Materials page.
Report: An Inventory of Research Capacity on Cities at UConn
As part of its core mission to support and enhance cities-related scholarship at UConn, in 2019 the SGCI initiated a university-wide inventory on research capacity. This detailed, annotated report categorizes UConn’s research capacity into the Six Core Themes of Urban Research used by the SGCI, which can either be viewed in brief in our one-page infographic, or in more detail at our Reference Materials page. It also includes in-depth analysis about UConn’s scholarly strengths, relevant university centers and initiatives, and connections to national trends in urban research. (n.b.: Please note the date upon opening the file, as this is a working paper that the SGCI is continuously updating.)
