Outreach & Research
In both outreach and research the New Cities Initiative focuses on facilitating the creation of research infrastructure.
Momentum is rapidly building toward development of a sixty-acre tract in west Lawrence that will become Campus Village, an intergenerational community. New Cities is working with the Campus Village corporation to facilitate this development, which will provide research infrastructure for gerontology and many other disciplines
In another infrastructure project we are reaching out to our sister institutions along the I-70 corridor through Kansas and Missouri. This effort, funded by a seed grant from KU’s Research Investment Council, aims to create an infrastructure for collaborative research on aging among scholars from nine universities situated between St. Louis, Missouri, and Manhattan, Kansas.
