Roger Williams College University Without Walls Urban Studies Center.
Roger Williams Coll., Bristol, RI.
Roger Williams College is one of 20 colleges and universities engaged in a new cooperative educational venture that offers an alternative approach to obtaining a college degree. The program, called the University Without Walls (UWW), is designed to provide mature students with new learning opportunities in higher education outside of the traditional educational mainstream. One of the proposed offerings at Roger Williams is an Urban Studies Program that will attempt to integrate classroom work with field experiences and research assistantships. The structure of the Urban Studies Program will differ from the main body in that the organizational focus will revolve around a small cluster of faculty and students who will design and develop the curriculum. The staff of the UWW believes that the Urban Studies Program, built upon the student-facilitator cluster, will be a positive addition to the organization and philosophy of the open university.
