The Added Dimension. State and Land-Grant Universities Serving State and Local Government.
Responses to a survey of university public service programs of benefit to state and local governments were received from 70 individual campuses, and one systemwide office, representing 79 of the 133 NASULGC member institutions and 41 of the 50 states. The survey asked for (1) information on institutes of government and on technical service units existing within or outside such institutes, and (2) information on organized research institutes or centers whose activities related to areas of major public interest. Major areas of concern included energy policy, transportation, land use, power plant siting, coastal zone management, building and housing codes, radioactive wastes and radiation protection, health care systems, air and water quality programs, and noise regulation. Respondents identified types of services provided, including contract research, reference services, bill drafting assistance, testimony at hearing, training sessions, seminars, and personnel exchanges. Respondents also rated a number of barriers to more cooperative relationships between state universities and state governments. (LBH)
