Community Service as Generative.
Doolittle, Robert J.
Community service is the most neglected of academic functions, largely because involvement in community programs is less likely to be rewarding to the scholar than research and teaching activities. Community service activities must be regarded as intrinsic to the functions of an urban college, especially since these projects can, in turn, generate new opportunities for teaching and research. Communication scholars, perhaps more than any other group, can provide special service, inasmuch as communicative difficulties are inherent in many urban problems. One example is a 1971 community task force project that received assistance from the University of Wisconsin (Milwaukee). Insights provided by involvement in such community service can assist educators in developing new and appropriate courses and research projects. (RN)
