A Process for Building Democratic CommunitiesBook - 2014
As the emphasis on economic development through community-university engagement intensifies, educators and policy makers must learn to think differently about the engagement process. This is particularly true when a narrowly defined group of leaders sets the engagement agenda, and those who are traditionally underrepresented continue to be marginalized in the conversations about their own futures. Emphasizing the importance of community as a context for engagement and building strong relationships over time, teh author calls on institutional leaders to intentionally facilitate broad participation by all members of a community in discussions about how and in what direction the community will develop.
