About the Book
Law and policy influence the complex web of relationships between institutions of higher education and their host communities. This volume explores how institutions are working with communities in ways that can increase the productivity and influence of both. The discussion is organized in four parts: an overview of higher education, its host communities, and the law; professional and economic relationships; public safety, health, and students in the community; and community and economic development. Within these categories, chapter authors discuss town-gown relationships that address a wide range of concerns, including higher education policy, tradition, contracts, board membership, PILOTs, finance, law enforcement, health initiatives, housing and community development plans, professional partnerships, economic development strategies, zoning policy, and approaches to sustainability. Throughout the book, authors share best practices of how to build better, stronger, and more productive town-gown relationships.
