For Better and for Worse: Understanding Optimal Campus-Community Relationships through the Lens of Marriage
Gavazzi, Stephen M.
Metropolitan Universities, v26 n1 p147-154 2015
Borrowing from marital research literature, a four-square matrix constructed from the twin dimensions of effort and comfort levels is used to describe a typology of campus and community associations. Results from a study using the Optimal College Town Assessment to measure community member perceptions on town-gown relationships are presented next, followed by a discussion of a mobilization cycle that situates such assessment efforts inside of an engagement strategy for establishing harmonious campus and community partnerships.
