History

CUES was established July I, 1972 by Dr. John M. DeGrove, under the original name of the Joint Center for Environmental and Urban Problems (Joint Center). The name was changed in 2002 to more accurately identify the shift of the Center from focusing on problems to implementable solutions. Read CUES’s Joint Center Summary Report 1983-1987
