The Urban Involvement of Colleges and Universities. Report, Higher Education Panel, American Council on Education, Survey No. 15.
Dutton, Jeffrey E.; Jenkins, Martin D.
This survey examined urban involvement of colleges and universities across the United States. A questionnaire was sent to 519 Higher Education panel member institutions, a 20% sample of the relevant population. Usable returns were received from 83.6% of the sample. Results indicated colleges and universities across the U.S. have been fairly active in urban affairs. These activities have not been free of the problems of financial support and size or location of the institution. Approximately 34% of these institutions had encountered major problems in trying to define what aspects of urban involvement were appropriate for their institution. The availability of competent staff and the lack of institutional incentives for faculty involvement also generated major problems at a large proportion of institutions. (Author/MJM)
