Planning and Partnerships for the Renewal of Urban Neighborhoods
Sterrett, Stephen A.
Journal of Higher Education Outreach and Engagement, v13 n3 p113-130 2009
Urban universities are a key resource for municipal government, businesses, community organizations, and citizens to foster partnerships for successful renewal of distressed urban neighborhoods. From its experience over the past decade, the Ohio State University has created a successful model for engagement with its neighborhoods and the City of Columbus. This model is grounded in market-based revitalization and includes community-based planning, a shared vision for renewal, multiple sources of funding, and a focus on long-term results. In turn, this engagement has invigorated the university's mission as a land-grant institution in the twenty-first century.
