The Social-Action Role of the University: San Juan, Puerto Rico. A Study of the Torrecilla Baja (Pinones) Community. Final Report.
Cataura, Osvaldo; Terrassa, Juan A.
This document presents a report of an experimental community service program that took place in Torrecilla Baja (Pinones), a suburban sector of San Juan, Puerto Rico, from June 30, 1971 through May 30, 1972. Students and faculty alike participated in the program, trying to develop recreational and other programs for the 1,300 underprivileged persons living in the area. The project, although not as successful as was originally hoped due to constraints of time and inadequate personnel, is deemed to have been worthwhile in the development of the students. It is felt that the students involved were able to develop a social consciousness not previously evident. In addition, a strong student-faculty relationship was formed that was beneficial to both.
