Greenery vs. Concrete and Walls and Doors: Images and Metaphors Affecting an Urban Mission.
Severino, Carl
Metropolitan Universities: An International Forum, v6 n2 p103-11 Fall 1995
The traditional pastoralism of American higher education has interfered with efforts to develop an urban mission for the university. In addition, current open-door metaphors of access, political trends, and media coverage are promulgating closed-door, wall-building rhetoric and policies. Now is the time to counter antiurban attitudes by reviving the urban mission analogy based on the rural mission. (MSE)
