The University as Urban Anchor investigates the role of the academy in the city-not just its educational contributions, but also the political, economic, and social development of the urban experience. Urban higher educational institutions provide a surprisingly significant range of contributions to cities. For instance, U.S. city-based universities are a $400+ billion annual operation, employing approximately 3 million people and enrolling 15 million full and part-time students. In at least two major U.S. cities, Philadelphia and Baltimore, the biggest employer is a university (U Pennsylvania and Johns Hopkins). Clearly this is a phenomenon worth close examination.

David Perry's innovative book provides the theoretical framework and historical development of the city-university collaboration. Domestic and global case studies of urban development are used to illustrate this partnership. Readers will come away from this volume with a clear picture of "lessons learned" and best practices for both cities and universities.
