University-City Relations: From Coexistence to Cooperation.
Ross, Bernard H.
The relationship between local governments and institutions of higher learning has been the subject of increased discussion. This monograph examines what faculty, administrators, public officials, and other commentators say about this relationship and analyzes their comments. Chapter one delineates the scope of the study and defines terms most frequently used in the monograph. In Chapter 2 the impact of the college or university upon the local environment is examined. Major factors discussed are the university as employer; the financial relationships between universities and local governments; the provision of public services to the university community. Chapter 3 considers the development of the university's academic and practical involvement in urban affairs, with focus on trends that emerged during the 1960's. Chapter 4 examines the strengths and weaknesses of colleges, universities, and of the local governments as they seek to accommodate each other. Chapter 5 presents conclusions about past and present efforts of colleges, universities and local governments as they interact with each other in urban environments. Finally, recommendations are given that would increase the cooperation between two of society's most significant institutions. A 43-item bibliography is included. (Author/MJM)
