Scope and Limitations of Community Interactions
Keywords:Higher Education, Community Interaction
AbstractMetropolitan universities derive a significant element of uniqueness from the breadth and character of their interactions with their communities. Drawing on the experience of two metropolitan universities, Virginia Commonwealth University (VCU) and the University of Missouri-Kansas City (UMKC), the scope of these interactions is illustrated. The discussion highlights potential limitations to the university inherent in such activities and what changes the university will need to undertake to ensure success.
