Sustained City-Campus Engagement: Reflections on Our Practice

Academic-enhanced version of the previously released M@L Story Project, including new quotes from Boyer, Lynton, and Schon. (July 2009). The MIT@Lawrence Story is a reflective practice exercise that aims to not only document and reflect on the progression of M@L as a university community partnership, but also as a conversation starter and discussion space for our partners on both sides of the @ sign. We're adopting a multi-layered approach to capture the story, including one-on-one interviews, panel discussions, and student reflections, all feeding into a website that will include a short documentary, an interactive and multi-themed timeline, and a physical summit of M@L stakeholders and friends. The goal is to create both a reflection of the lessons learned and a conversation about what's next in our endeavor to create sustained engagement mechanisms for university and community that lead to transformation of both planning theory & practice academically but also community-based action.
