A new Kind of Program...Raising up a new kind of leader
U4C exists to disciple and equip college students to love God and love their neighbor within an urban, cross-cultural context.
But what does that mean, exactly?
To answer that question simply would be to say that U4C is an off-campus study program offered through our consortium member schools that allows students to major and/or minor in Urban Studies. Students do this through spending one or two semesters in the program living, studying and serving in South Minneapolis.
However, such an answer overlooks the depth and complexity of the program. U4C is not your typical academic program.
