Marcia Marker Feld, professor of community planning at the University of Rhode Island, attributes increased interest in urban revitalization and community partnerships to the ascendancy of 1960s activists who are now running college and university urban-planning programs.Feld, who was the founding director of the Office of University Partnerships in the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), vigorously justifies university-community involvement, explaining that institutions of higher education, especially land-grant colleges and universities, have a moral commitment to serve their communities.

HUD created the Office of University Partnerships in 1994 to recognize and build on successful examples of university activity in local revitalization projects.The office aims to persuade urban scholars to focus their work on housing and community-development policy, and it seeks partnerships with other federal agencies to support innovative teaching, research, and service partnerships.More than seventy universities now participate in the office's five programs, and grant funds are available.Details about the programs can be found on the Web at www.oup.org.
"Originally, urban revitalization was a marginal issue, even in the field of urban planning," Feld says.
