The Urban Affairs Programs of Higher Education Associations: What They Are Doing and What They Can Do.
Jenkins, Martin D.
The purposes of the present study were to ascertain the sensitiveness of higher education associations to the involvement of colleges and universities in urban affairs and to encourage the associations to give increased attention to the urban involvement of their members in their programs and activities. It was found that only 19 of the 55 respondent associations are involved in active urban affairs programs reflecting real concern with the urban involvement of colleges and universities. Twenty-seven other associations have or anticipate having some urban-related activities that are incidental and superficial and probably have little real impact on the urban programs of the associations' members. It is concluded that higher education associations, as a group, are sensitive to the involvement of colleges and universities in urban affairs and that their programs are beginning to have an impact on the urban-related activities of their members.
