This year's Urban Fellows get a lesson in organic farming, city style, as they tour the Greater Rochester Urban Bounty during a day-long excursion on July 26 that focused on revitalization efforts in Rochester. It was just one of many such experiences during a 10-week program that asks college students to take a closer look at the complex social and economic issues affecting many American cities.

Look for changes coming this fall

Our first issue this fall will signal our return to the regular biweekly schedule, but it also marks the beginning of a series of changes planned for Currents. The most obvious will be an increase in the number of pages; we're expanding from four to eight.

We're also redesigning and expanding our calendar to make it a comprehensive and visually exciting snapshot of what's happening at the University.

These changes are the first of many you'll notice during the coming months.
