Report on the Inter-University Seminar on Urban Extension
"On May 2 and 3, 1966, representatives from eight universities and the Pittsburgh ACTION-Housing project met in Newark, N.J. to evaluate a five-year experimental program in urban extension in which they had participated. The overall program was financed by the Ford Foundation through grants ranging from $1,000,000 for the University of Wisconsin to $70,000 for the University of Missouri. The experimental program had three basic goals: first, to see what lessons the universities had gained from their long experience with cooperative extension which could be applied to the urban environment; second, to develop certain institutional arrangements whereby the resources of the university could be channeled into urban problem solving activity; and third, to seek ways of stimulating and encouraging substantial faculty involvement in urban extension activity."--Page 1.
