In its recent report on the "engaged university," the Kellogg Commission (1999) concluded that in addition to offering"first rate undergraduate and graduate programs that prepare students to respond effectively to the complex issues of the society they will enter, [universities] must directly respond to the social and economic concerns of the communities [they serve]" (p. 9). Over the last decade, universities have increasingly begun to recognize their responsibility to address the issues and problems confronting society. Many universities are responding to this challenge by developing formal partnerships with communities.
