URBAN EXTENSION, A REPORT ON EXPERIMENTAL PROGRAMS ASSISTED BY THE FORD FOUNDATION.
Ford Foundation, New York, NY.
THIS REPORT OUTLINED THE EXPERIENCES OF EIGHT UNIVERSITIES--CALIFORNIA AT BERKELEY, DELAWARE, ILLINOIS, MISSOURI, OKLAHOMA, PURDUE, RUTGERS, AND WISCONSIN--AND A NONACADEMIC COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT ORGANIZATION, ACTION-HOUSING, PITTSBURGH, WHICH HAD RECEIVED FORD FOUNDATION GRANTS FOR URBAN EXTENSION PROGRAMS. EACH ORGANIZATION USED THE APPROACH BEST SUITED TO ITS SIZE AND STRUCTURE, AND THE SKILLS AND TALENTS OF STAFF PERSONNEL. THE MOST SIGNIFICANT CONSEQUENCE OF MOST OF THE EXPERIMENTS LAY IN HELPING LOCAL COMMUNITIES CREATE STRUCTURES FOR THE WAR ON POVERTY, ENHANCING THE ABILITY OF UNIVERSITIES TO SERVE STATE AND LOCAL GOVERNMENTS IN SHAPING COMMUNITY ACTION PROGRAMS TO MEET FEDERAL REQUIREMENTS, CREATING A WORKING LIAISON BETWEEN THE UNIVERSITIES AND GOVERNMENT AGENCIES, AND CRYSTALLIZING SEVERAL CRITICAL QUESTIONS WHICH UNIVERSITIES MUST RESOLVE TO FUNCTION EFFECTIVELY IN URBAN AFFAIRS. THIS DOCUMENT IS ALSO AVAILABLE FROM THE FORD FOUNDATION, OFFICE OF REPORTS, 477 MADISON AVE., NEW YORK, NEW YORK 10022. (LY)
