The Role of a Metropolitan University in Facilitating Regional Cooperation
AbstractThis article describes the process involved in creating a regional strategic plan that encompasses a sevencounty metropolitan area. Wright State University, located in the Dayton-Springfield, Ohio, Metropolitan Statistical Area, played a facilitative-leadership role throughout the strategic planning process. In a region politically fragmented by over a hundred local governments, the strategic plan and process created a greater appreciation and understanding for a focused regional priority agenda among key leaders and governments.
