A University Center Leverages Resources and Provides Access
Baus, Frederick
New Directions for Higher Education, n138 p67-74 Sum 2007
A parade of people composed of young mothers, young professionals, middle-aged men and women and elder South Carolinians are marching across the parking lot into the former McAlister Square Mall. They have access to higher education because higher education has come to them--not in the form of a traditional campus but as the concrete realization of community leaders' and educators' shared vision: no citizen of upstate South Carolina shall be denied appropriate, convenient, affordable access to higher education. As a result of ongoing support, a partnership involving the member universities and community leaders with the South Carolina legislature, the dying McAlister Square Mall has been transformed into a vital university center with programs of all descriptions offered morning, afternoon, and evening. This chapter reviews the history and impact of a regional center through which seven universities collaborate to serve the educational needs of a major metropolitan area in upstate South Carolina.
