A Study of Coordinated Service Provision and Administrative Procedures in Selected University Communities.
Clemson Univ., SC. Strom Thurmond Inst. of Government and Public Affairs.
This study investigated the existence of coordinated/consolidated services between colleges and universities and their communities by surveying 27 university communities of similar size and/or characteristics to Clemson University (South Carolina). The report begins with the profiles of the universities selected: their size in acreage, enrollment, and population; housing; and location. Next, areas of service consolidation that have been found to exist between the school and the community are discussed. The services include: police and fire protection; medical care; waste disposal (solid and hazardous); recreation; transportation services and maintenance; and water service. Coordinated activities of the university community that are done to enhance the quality of life in the community are described; these include planning and land regulation, environmental efforts, technology transfer, and energy initiatives. In addition, the report reveals the problems inherent in city/university relationships and what other communities may be doing to address these issues; these include parking and traffic congestion, land use and zoning, childcare, recreational opportunities, and student/community relations. Appendices include the study's questionnaire and several examples of school/community policies and agreements. (GLR)
