Beyond the Campus: How Colleges and Universities Form Partnerships with Their Communities.
Maurrasse, David J.
Through an in-depth study of four schools, this book explores college-community partnerships. The case studies of the University of Pennsylvania, San Francisco State University, Xavier University, and Hostos Community College show how business and the university can work together for the good of the community. The chapters are: (1) "The Mission of Higher Education"; (2) "Have Ivory Tower, Will Travel: The University of Pennsylvania and West Philadelphia"; (3) "Living Up to a People's University: San Francisco State University and the City of San Francisco"; (4) "Community in the Roots: Xavier University and New Orleans"; (5) "Just Getting By: Hostos Community College and the South Bronx"; and (6) "Comparisons and Conclusions." An appendix lists the people interviewed for the study. (Contains 149 endnotes and 49 references.) (SLD)
