Statement on Charlottesville

 

The Cyberhood's mission is to encourage critical thinking about the plight of communities of color, conditions in the inner city, and the problems of low-wage workers. The website's goal is to connect students, scholars, practitioners, and activists from across the racial and class divide in order to build meaningful relationships. It is our belief that the building of such connections will strengthen the struggle to understand and transform inner cities and the metropolitan regions of which they are a part.

 

In keeping with the Cyberhood's mission, we condemn recent instances of violence spurred by racism, anti-Semitism, and hatred in Charlottesville, VA. We see these views as symptomatic of more general forms of intolerance and discrimination that are detrimental to historically disenfranchised groups in our society. To counter these views, we stand in solidarity with those who seek to expose bigotry and intolerance. We encourage public discourse aimed at their eradication and reaffirm the Cyberhood as an instrument to reach this end.

UPSILON SIGMA (ΥΣ)

A New Student Recognition and
Professional Development Opportunity

 
 
The Urban Affairs Association has established the first international honor society to recognize the academic achievements of undergraduate and graduate students pursuing degrees in urban studies and related fields.
 
Urban Studies is a broad umbrella term for academic programs and research that focus on the social, political, economic, spatial, physical, historical, cultural, and environmental dynamics of urban contexts. Elements of urban studies can be found in several different disciplines, as well as within explicitly interdisciplinary fields such as urban affairs and urban planning. Given the varied academic homes for urban studies, eligibility for participation in the Society will be judged on the basis of individual program attributes.
 
We invite applications from academic units to establish chapters of Upsilon Sigma. Each year, there will be two application periods, one in the Fall, and the second in the Spring. For the 2018 calendar year, we have established the following application periods:
 
Spring 2018 Application Period

  • April 2—Application due to the UAA Executive Office
  • May 15—Application review decisions completed

 
Fall 2018 Application Period

  • November 1—Application due to the UAA Executive Office
  • December 15—Application review decisions completed

 
Basic Requirements to Establish an Upsilon Sigma Chapter

  • Successful chapter application
  • Annual UAA Institutional Membership (dues are $345 per year)
  • Student induction fees (one-time induction fee of $35 per student)

Full details on the application process and requirements are now available on the UAA website:
