The Urban Grant College: A College Without Walls.
Gerth, Donald R.; And Others
In the next decade, the American campus will be under constant pressure from minorities, industry, welfare departments and hospitals to help improve urban life. These pressures will be so great that the university's only alternative to lack of commitment will be the discovery of a new "American" concept of education, such as the creation of an urban grant college geared to the needs of the cities. Instruction in the urban grant college would balance work performed in and out of the classroom. Pre-professional students would not only use the community as a laboratory, but also provide services which could include home demonstrations. Research should be primarily of an applied nature and relevant to urban problems. Cities need the knowledge and direct assistance that only an educational organization can supply, but in order to give that kind of assistance, the colleges must be totally dedicated to the cities themselves.
