From Outreach to Engaged Placemaking: Understanding Public Land-Grant University Involvement with Tourism Planning and Development
Herts, Rolando D.
Journal of Higher Education Outreach and Engagement, v17 n1 p97-111 2013
This dissertation research project aimed to identify benefits and drawbacks of public land-grant university involvement with tourism planning and development, an emergent form of university-community engagement. Using qualitative methodology, the study's findings led to the codification of levels of university tourism planning and development capacity. It is hoped that the overall project--a portion of which is summarized in this dissertation overview--lays the groundwork for further research on public land-grant university tourism planning and development as potentially both a beneficial and a disempowering form of university-community engagement. (Contains 1 table and 1 figure.)
