The Power of Institutions and Agents: Sources of Failed University-Community Collaboration
Keywords:Higher Education, Community Collaboration
AbstractSome urban university engagements with their local communities have given the mistaken impression that universities can be neutral or equal partners with their communities. When universities adopt this view (e.g., the case presented in this article), they contribute to unsuccessful partnerships with their communities. Failures can be prevented if universities establish engagement programs and structures that linkfaculty expertise to the knowledge needs of the community.
