Guidelines for Institutional Self-Study of Involvement in Urban Affairs.
Jenkins, Martin D.
These guidelines were prepared to encourage and assist colleges and universities in giving systematic thought to the dimensions of their involvement in community and area affairs. They are intended to provide the basis for in-depth analyses to be conducted by individual institutions. Various aspects of urban involvement are defined, some of the major questions are identified and examples are cited of current programs. A checklist summarizing the areas which institutions must consider is included. It covers: institutional and program objectives, organization and administration, curriculum and instruction, community involvement, the role of the institution as a corporation, research, facilities, and costs.
