A growing number of universities are dedicating resources to support their surrounding communities, but much potential for advancement remains. A university's mission as an "anchor institution," as defined by the authors, is to consciously and strategically apply the institution's long-term, place-based economic power, in combination with its human and intellectual resources, to better the welfare of the community in which it resides. Drawing on ten diverse universities as case studies, this eye-opening book explores practices and strategies that can be employed to improve conditions in low-income communities and emphasizes the critical roles of university leaders, philanthropy, and policy in this process. To date the most comprehensive account of the range of roles played by universities as anchors in their communities, "The Road Half Traveled "provides a forward-thinking perspective on new horizons in university and community partnership.
