Higher Education and Regional Development. A Compendium of Public Service Activities by Colleges and Universities in Northern New York.
Chugh, Ram L.
A study was done of the public service programs of the colleges and universities of the Adirondack North Country Association (ANCA) region and how they contribute to the regional development of northern New York State. The study asked the 21 institutions of the ANCA area to respond to a survey seeking information on various aspects of each institution's public service programs. Twenty institutions responded. Results, which are summarized in section 1 of this report, indicated that the institutions regarded public service as very important to their institutional mission, that most institutions provide a wide variety of services to meet diverse community needs, that local communities are the primary focus for most institutions followed by the county in which they are located; that there exists a high degree of interaction between institutions of higher education and their communities, and that ANCA-area colleges and universities significantly contribute to the economic stability of their communities. The second and by far largest section of the report contains campus profiles of the institutions participating in the study. Each profile contains a description of the institution, descriptions of its significant public service activities and its major regional activities, and information on college and community interaction, faculty and staff, students, conferences/workshops/non-credit courses, economic impact, and contact information.
