University-Urban Interface: Issues, Methodology, Prospects.
Van Dusen, Albert C.; Brictson, Robert C.
The University-Urban Interface Program (UUIP) of the University of Pittsburgh is an action-research effort designed to study the actual and potential roles of the University in the community in a time of change. Five basic projects are included within the UUIP: (1) Minority and Community Services; (2) Campus Development Impact; (3) Communications; (4) Long-Range Pittsburgh Goals; and (5) University Governance Organization for Community Relations. The interaction between major city-based universities and their urban communities has become a matter of great national significance. On the one hand, the increasing intensity of our urban problems and the growing public awareness of and concern about these problems have given them the highest national domestic priority. Almost simultaneously, the major universities of the country have come to be viewed as powerful resources for solving all sorts of national problems and for achieving national priorities. These two developments converge in what can be called the university-urban interface. (Author/HS)
