The Dynamics of University/City Government Relationships: It's Personal
Curry, Joanne E.
Metropolitan Universities, v27 n1 p56-70 2016
The rich potential of university/city government relationships is often overwhelmed by day-to-day conflicts over everything from planning and land use to transportation and noise. Such disputes--even a single, unresolved incident--can create an enduring narrative of antagonism that undermines the relationship ongoing. Leveraging recent doctoral research contrasting two case studies, this paper discusses the importance of history and context and describes management processes that can build trust and lead to a mutual strategic purpose.
