A Model of University/Agency Collaboration for Public Service Research and Dissemination.
The Public Service Research Program at the University of California at Davis is described. The goal of the program is to develop a systematic approach to an integrated community/university program. Requirements are that a public policy issue must be addressed, faculty and students must be involved, and collaboration with a government agency or a community must occur. Collaborative research projects with government agencies, commissioned papers, and workshops, conferences, and symposia form the basis of the program. The importance of dissemination of results, extension networks using courses, and/or consultation are an important part of the public service research process. The program is supported by a networking function performed by the central program staff. Factors that have contributed to the success of the program are noted. (SW)
