Book Description:
This book offers a case study of a medium-sized, private metropolitan university’s adoption, implementation, and assessment of a civic engagement mission. Situated in a city where the loss of a once robust industrial base has resulted in urban blight faced by many communities throughout the United States, this university is attempting to partner with community members to address the social and economic impact of these changes and to bolster the resiliency of residents and local organizations. While prompted by a genuine desire on the part of many in the university community to serve the community, this civic engagement initiative is also shaped by the belief that such service will enrich the educational experience of the university’s students and provide additional professional development opportunities for faculty.
