Van Dusen, Albert C.
The Office of Program Development and Public Affairs (PDPA) from its inception in September 1967 to July 1971 was primarily concerned with advancing the total University with its traditional mission of teaching and research and with facilitating the University's emerging concerns for public service. The Office assisted with the program development of new directions of the Universtity, especially state-relatedness and the urban dimension, and was responsible for the various offices related to public affairs. The report emphasizes the historical origins and developments of the several offices and functions in the area of PDPA and provides a detailed description of the content and foci of these programs. These offices include news and publications, governmental relations, development and alumni affairs, cultural and educational exchange, university press, special events, Stephen Foster Memorial, Heinz Memorial Chapel, urban and community services, and university-urban interface program.
