The URRC Editorial Board consists of individuals who work with the Director to determine what will be published under URRC masthead and solicitation criteria. The Editorial Board will also review submissions for quality.
There will be separate publications for each area of focus (5) in addition to a central URRC publication, the Urban Research and Resource Journal. Our Journal covers were inspired by two young urbanites:
- The Concept came from thirteen year old Houston public school student, Morgan Johnson, who believes the Center should stand for the idea that the urban community need not look outside of itself for solutions to its problems or to celebrate its accomplishments. Her concept is that the urban community can address and redress its problems from the brilliance that resides within it. She visualized that concept as “Urban Super Heroes”.
- Biko Walker put Morgan’s vision to life through artistic characters who embody the urbanite. Each Urban Super Hero bears the symbol of the Tiger, representing Texas Southern University and the essential role it plays in the urban community. Each Hero representing the Texas Southern Communiversity.
