The Urban Alliance

Recent events in Baltimore have highlighted many problems in urban centers today.  These problems are complex with no easy solution.  The important role played by faith-based organizations and personnel was very well highlighted in Baltimore. 

During the past year at Johnson University, professor Kenny Woodhull has been developing and directing a new Urban Alliance initiative at Johnson.  This initiative includes partnerships with local leaders and organizations, like Emerald Youth Foundation and Knoxville Leadership Foundation, and features a multifaceted strategy that bridges the needs and resources of urban Knoxville with the capabilities and resources of Johnson University.
