Urban Affairs Activities Sponsored by Colleges and Universities: An Inventory of Curricula, Research, and Extension in the Baltimore Region.
Regional Planning Council, Baltimore, MD.; Johns Hopkins Univ., Baltimore, MD.
From the 24 institutions of higher learning in the Baltimore Region, 20 report one or more activities in the field of urban affairs. In all, about 350 activities were reported, including a summarized list of individual consultative services from the Johns Hopkins University. Over 100 research projects dealing with urban problems were reported. Curriculums include training for urban-type jobs (nursing, mental health technician, social service assistant), as well as the courses in urban affairs or problems. The job training programs are better represented than the academic courses relevant to urban affairs. The bulk of the extension services are individual consultative services. Few, indeed, are the "programs" identifiable as extension. The new health complex at Essex Community College is an example of a program which combines research, extension, and curriculums. The survey shows that very few of the current programs embrace the three types of activity. (The document includes six references.) (author/ly)
