Universities without Walls: Engaging Our World
Reid, Janice
Higher Education Review, v46 n1 p31-51 Aut 2013
Over the last two decades the engagement of universities with their cities and regions, both as partners and as catalysts in economic and social development, has become a hallmark of the missions of many. Staff and students are benefiting from the satisfactions and lessons of contributing to transformative programs. Other institutions have joined or led multi-agency partnerships for urban renewal, regional economic development and cultural enrichment. The growth of international university coalitions such as the Talloires Network and the growing scholarship of engagement, combined with efforts to codify, evaluate and reward the achievements of staff and students is gaining ground, legitimacy and acknowledgement. Universities are engaging purposefully with the communities on whose goodwill they depend and building reciprocal partnerships to further knowledge, understanding, collaboration and action.
