The Center for Applied Urban Research provides professional services in applied research, training, and community service. Primarily these services are provided to state provided and local governmental units in Nebraska, though some activities may be national or international in scope. To a lesser extent, services are provided to private groups and agencies. CAUR, a unit within the College of Public Affairs and Community Service at the University of Nebraska at Omaha, was initially established in 1963 as the Urban Studies Center at the Municipal University of Omaha.
