The Role of the University in the Community. III.
Governmental Research Institute Bulletin, v22 n17 Jun 69
This is the last in a series of 3 bulletins dealing with university-community relationships. The first bulletin examined the role of the university in contemporary American life and cited some innovative programs in university-community cooperation. The second bulletin discussed some of the areas in which cooperation exists between the University of Nebraska and the city of Lincoln and pointed out some problem areas in university-local government relations. This bulletin deals with the response of the University of Nebraska to urban problems within the state. The information was obtained from responses to letters of inquiry sent to several universities and national organizations. Much of this report describes the Center for Urban Affairs at Omaha. The scope of the Center's effort includes community service, education and teaching, and basic and applied research. Specific activities in each of these areas are listed. In addition to the Center, other activities of the University are described. The Industrial Research and Information Service was established to assist industry in growth and development. The Institute of Computational Science has provided technical assistance in many local, state, and national government projects. The Human Resources Research Foundation, in addition to its research functions, has been involved in several community service projects. (DS)
