The San Francisco Consortium; An Educational Association for Urban Affairs. Progress Report.
San Francisco Consortium, CA.
The San Francisco Consortium was formed in the Fall of 1967 by 5 institutions: City College of San Francisco, Golden Gate College, San Francisco State College, University of California-San Francisco Medical Center and the University of San Francisco. Its primary purpose is to be the instrument through which the resources of the major local universities are brought to bear on the problems of the urban environment. A second purpose is to provide a means by which selected educational research and service programs of the participating institutions may be improved and strengthened by coordination, exchange, or joint ventures. Early emphasis has been on establishing better cooperation among the participating institutions, and on improving the working relationship between these institutions and the community. During its first 2 years, the Consortium has also been able to provide many special services to the community, including staff assistance and consultation. Consortium representatives have also participated in many conferences and meetings. Though hampered by shortage of funds, the Consortium hopes eventually to establish a multi-purpose, urban-educational center. (AF)
