Dynamics, Role, and Function in Inter-University Collaboration. Final Report.
O'Sullivan, Maurice J.; And Others
The Higher Education Center for Urban Studies (HECUS) was formed as a consortium in 1968 by 5 institutions of higher education located in or near Bridgeport, Connecticut. It has been involved mainly in urban research, community service, and in facilitating educational services for disadvantaged people. This report is a study made to determine whether or not HECUS should continue the present course and nature of its operations, or should redirect them. During the period of the study, 4 additional institutions became members of HECUS. Their representatives, along with those of the original members, as well as selected program participants and representatives of certain community agencies, comprised the study committee. The study committee found that HECUS is making progress along worthwhile paths of action. The committee's recommendations pertain mainly to an expansion of the scope of HECUS' operations and to an acceleration of the pace of HECUS' development. (Author/HS)
