Institute on Metropolitan Opportunity at the University of Minnesota Law School

The Institute on Metropolitan Opportunity (IMO) investigates the ways that laws, policies and practices affect development patterns in U.S. metropolitan regions, with a particular focus on the growing social and economic disparities within these areas.

Through top-level scholarship, mapping and advocacy, IMO provides the resources that policymakers, planning officials and community organizations need to address reform in taxation, land use, housing, metropolitan governance and education.
