21CC has multiple objectives. We conduct original urban research. We hold campus wide urban events.  We engage in citywide, statewide and federal policy outreach. We  also engage in civic engagement to strengthen the City of Baltimore. We release policy relevant reports to stimulate debate about urban public policy.

Join our mailing list. The 21st Century Cities Initiative will be working closely with JHU’s Centers for Civic Impact on a wide range of research and outreach urban projects.
