Needed: An Urban Extension Service; Trends, Problems and Possibilities under Title I of the Higher Education Act of 1965.
Ferver, Jack C.
Title I of the Higher Education Act of 1965 has demonstrated that institutions of higher learning can make an important contribution to the solution of community problems through community service projects. But there are limitations, the greatest of which are lack of adequate program funds and mounting program needs, particularly for programs relating to the problems of the poor in our central cities. The great potential is in developing Title I into an Urban Extension Service with organizational linkages between federal, state, and urban governments, urban citizens, and urban-grant colleges and universities.
