Community Constraints on Academic Planning: Myths and Realities.
Shaw, Paul C.; Tronzo, Louis A.
The university is responsible to its surrounding community as well as its internal constituency. The university must consult with community organizations and win their approval for its plans for expansion or face the possibility of delays and financial loss. Urban universities face common problems with surrounding communities when expanding. Community organizations question: the necessity for campus expansion; whether university plans are revealed to the community; university sensitivity to the problems of resident relocation; the failure of the university to include multi-use buildings in its plans; and university efforts to reconcile differences with the community.
