This report describes a demonstration project at Tuskegee Institute of interdisciplinary research that focused on small town development. The goals were the involvement of faculty and students in the practice of research, the stimulation of interdisciplinary thinking and planning, the involvement of faculty and students in the affairs of the surrounding community, and the enhancement of the status of college research activities through their utility for the community. This report describes: (1) the rationale for the operational objectives; (2) the methods of interdisciplinary contact; (3) the coordination, management, and budget; (4) the projects, which included architecture and survey research, a neighborhood priority study, a use of services survey, real estate assessment, an economic development seminar, and a black political study; (5) the administrative coordination, including faculty participation, curriculum development, and community implementation; and (6) the recommendations. Evaluations of the program, memorandums circulated concerning the program, and data sheets containing information about interests and concerns on the part of the community are included in the appendix.
