Project Right Start.
Jameson, Barbara B.
The University-Urban Interface Program (UUIP) is a federally-funded project to study an urban university's community relations efforts and innovations, their successes and failures. This is a study of one of the UUIP areas of priority, Project Right Start, a plan for creating a facility for the detection and treatment of psychological problems in infants and young children. The report is divided into 3 parts: (1) a description of Project Right Start; (2) a history of the development of Project Right Start; and (3) an analysis of an interface between the university, the community, and a target agency. Part I describes the program of Project Right Start and the general characteristics of the population it is serving. Part II highlights events occurring in the university, the community, and in Project Right Start. Three charts at the end OF Part II summarize the history of the project from 1967-1972. A glossary gives the full name and a brief description of agencies relevant to the development of Project Right Start. Part II approaches the development of Project Right Start from a sociological perspective, using the Institution-Building model as the framework for the analysis. Appendices include the organization and structure of the University of Pittsburgh, the use of the Institution-Building Model for UUIP research, the members of the research advisory council, and a list of the other reports published by the UUIP.
