Redefining Campus: Urban Universities and the Idea of Place.
Horvat, Erin McNamara; Shaw, Kathleen M.
New Directions for Higher Education, n105 p101-107 Spr 1999
The mission embraced by urban universities creates an environment for intellectual inquiry and purposeful societal action equal or superior to the notion of "collegiate ideal." They have expanded the concept of place, encompassing society in general and the urban community in particular, by maintaining a commitment to educating urban populations and building on and contributing to the urban landscape.
