Nash, George; Waldorf, Dan
This study presents case studies that focus in depth on what 9 diverse institutions of higher education have done about urban problems that exist in their areas. Specifically, each of the institutions selected for inclusion in the report is doing an outstanding job in one or several areas of urban, community and minority education, research or service. In addition, the administration of each institution has made a firm commitment to the urban crisis. Criteria for the final selection of the samples were the representativeness of institutions in terms of size, geography, type of control and academic level. The institutions represented are the University of California at Los Angeles; the University of Chicago; Columbia University, New York; Morgan State College, Baltimore, Maryland; City University of New York; Northeastern University, Boston, Massachusetts; Our Lady of the Lake College, San Antonio, Texas; Southern Illinois University, Carbondale; and Wayne State University, Detroit, Michigan.
