Reviews and Testimonials
The contributions about the role of information technologies in community-university partnerships are insightful, providing a broad range of examples in which modern technology is used to foster linkages among higher education, communities, and their respective partners. Before these modern technologies were available, higher education outreach was a noble idea, but extraordinarily difficult to implement in ways that could touch all elements of society. That is no longer true. Even marginalized elements of our society are within reach, as several chapters demonstrate. Although the book often points to lack of funding as an impediment to further progress, the only real impediment is the limitations of our own creativity in developing and employing the available technologies as we foster partnerships to achieve our goals.
