URBAN DECISION-MAKING, THE UNIVERSITY'S ROLE.
BAILEY, STEPHEN K.
THE AUTHOR EXAMINES THE VARIOUS WAYS IN WHICH THE UNIVERSITY CAN AND SHOULD INFLUENCE URBAN DECISION MAKING. THE CENTRAL UNIVERSITY ROLE IS SENSITIZING THE DECISION MAKERS AND THE CITIZENS TO HUMAN MISERY, SUCH AS BIGOTRY, SQUALOR, DISEASE, UGLINESS, POVERTY, AND IGNORANCE. LONG-RANGE ROLES ARE PINPOINTING THE PROBLEMS URBAN DECISION MAKERS SHOULD DEAL WITH, DISCOVERING THE ROOT LAWS OF HUMAN BEHAVIOR, AND FINDING ANSWERS TO PROBLEMS ACCORDING TO THESE LAWS. SHORT-RANGE ROLES INCLUDE PROVIDING TECHNICAL ADVICE AND EDUCATING URBAN DECISION MAKERS. THE COMPLETE DOCUMENT, "POLITICAL BACKGROUND OF ADULT EDUCATION, THE UNIVERSITY IN URBAN SOCIETY," IS ALSO AVAILABLE FROM THE CENTER FOR THE STUDY OF LIBERAL EDUCATION OF ADULTS AT BOSTON UNIVERSITY, 138 MOUNTFORT ST., BROOKLINE, MASSACHUSETTS 02146, FOR $1.25.
