University and Society

Interdependencies and Exchange

Edited by Ágnes Kövér and Gaby Franger

What role can the university play in the broader community or society in which it is embedded? Must it remain segregated in the halls of science and knowledge, which tower above the community? This book examines the growing number of questions and concerns around university-community relations by exploring widely accepted theories and practices and placing them under new light.

Chapter 15: The university as community developer

David Campbell and Dennis Pendleton

Abstract

This chapter explores two case narratives of engaged scholarship, drawing on the authors’ experiences as university scholars promoting community development through engagement with local citizens, public officials, and community-based organizations. The narratives provide a textured understanding of how engagement is constrained by routine, deeply embedded practices and assumptions, but also of how, despite this, space for more robust, democratic engagement can be created.
