During the summer of 1968, 20 students from Sarah Lawrence College took part in New York City's Urban Corps, and one of them, Teresa Baker, wrote this article on their experiences with the city. Miss Baker had a bird's- eye view of the entire program from her internship position in the Urban Corps program development office. A native of Denver, Colorado, Miss Baker received her .B. A. from Sarah Lawrence College in June, 1969. Miss Baker, 21, was editor of her college newspaper, an editorial assistant in the Sarah Lawrence Office of Publications and Publicity, and a tutor in the Upward Bound Program. She will be attending the Columbia Unive rsity School of Journalism i n September , 1969. Additio n a l copie s of this re print are ava ilable u pon r e que st. �

Thi s fee covers the cost of the three meals included in the program. For those who cannot attend all three meals, further adjustment will be possible. If you need lodging, reservations at the White House Motor Inn should be made by you personally.

DEPUTY DIRECTOR OF FINANCE JAMES R . FOUNTAIN, JR . DEPUTY DIRECTOR OF FINANCE Mr. Dan E. Sweat, Jr . Director of Governmental Liaison Mayor's Office City of Atlanta Atlanta, Georgia 30303 Dear Dan: Reference is made to your letter of June 25, 1969, in which you advise of the oversight in providing travel allowances for certain interns in the Urban Core Program. I agree with your concept of paying these interns; however, I believe it would be wise to transfer funds from the operating account, 770U, to a S00U account which is normaily established for auto allowances or transportation purposes. This action would be consistent with the general accounting procedures of the city and would set forth the proper record of expenditures of the Urban Core. In order to implement this, I would need an estimate of the cost of transportation so that the appropriate transfer within appropriations can be made. Sincerely, c:ft{~ / &7c._ Ch rles L.

New Yo r k City has an URBAN CORPS interns hip progr am designe d to of fer co llege s tudents the opportunity to par ticipate first - hand in an urban society by t aking a direct part in its administrat ion. For e l igible students, the program also provide s a way to earn money thr ough the use of co ll ege work study fu nds . The URBAN CORPS is administe r e d for the City of Ne w York by the Of fice of the }!a yor, in coopera tion with the De partme nt of Per s onne l. The UR BAN CORPS is a coopera tive ve n t u re of the City, the Fe de r a l Of fi ce of Ed uca tio~ and the par ti c ipat ing co lleges and univers ities , Ever y ass i gnme nt i s individua lly prepared by the requesti ng a ge nc y or de pa rtme nt, and is eva lua t e d as to its applica bili t y for a college student inte r nsh i p pr ogram.

The program would f ocus our soci e ty 1 s educational techniques and talents on the problems of lif e - eith e r in our ru ra l or urba n ar ~a s. It will not be simpl.= to qu a lify f o r g r a n t s und,~r this pr ogram . Th e government -has neither th e means no r the desi r e to inve st public funds in an expen s ive progra m who se net effe cts will be margina l, wasteful, o r visible only after protract ed delay. We intend to he lR 011ly tho s e scho ols, citi e s, stat e s, and institutions whos e pl.ans ·ce ally s e rve to help oth e rs in th e ir strugg le for a more meaningful and productive lif e . We pr opose the following guidelines for dete rmi n in g an a pplicant 1 s qualific a ti ons for th e be ne fits - and achi eve me nts of this progra m. Many of th ese s pe ak dir e ctly to the university educationa l structu r e, as initi a ll y , work will probably be concentrat e d here. But the over riding gen e ralities of r e alistic and co1npl e te planning will apply to al 1. The success that each de monstration progra m can have will dep e nd on the quality of its pl.an11ing , and the degree of cooperation it elicits from the variou s gov ernme n t al bodi e s concern ed (i.e . students, ad1ninistration, faculty, community bodi e s, "Mod e l Ci tie s !' pe opl e , and those in local Urban Coalitions) as well as private int e r e sts . Th e abs e nc e of this coop e ration be twe en contiguous areas is was te ful, as we ll as blind to th e reality of urban lif e .

Emphasis on volunteerism should be evident and the areas where salaries are necess a ry made very e xplicit. There should be evidence that the appropriate depart me nts and groups within the university have been cont ac ted to seek support for the propo se d program. The program ·should reflect an attempt to make full use of the university structure, not only its stude nts, but scientists, economists, a;chitects, mathematicians, as well as buildings, athletic fields and libraries. Attempts must be made to focus resea r ch resources on problems facing the city, such as traffic congestion, air pollution, housing, transportation, public health, etc. Where possible a joint effort, e xcha nge , or coordina tion of programs with ne ighboring schools should be made. Lectures and spec ial programs should be o pen to the community and scheduled with some att en tion to t~e ir inter es t and nee ds, e.g., a Black American series .

There is a lack of communication both within the university's structure and between the university and thos~ who can effectively utilize its assistance. Integration goes hand in hand with communication in these areas. If integration seldom exist s within academic institutions, it rarely exists within its community. There is an ever increa sing need for the univers ity t o pla y a more dive r sified; pa rticipa ting r ole. \ Higher education is often a symbol of medieval isolation, with the unive rsity insulated in its castle from the surro~nding environment. When a university doe s cross the moa t to involve itself with the co1~munity, the r e sults are oft e n uneven, f ragmentary and uns ystema t ic. The emphas is of education rema ins on the wr itten word . In thi s cha ngeoriented society the "PhD" · and a long str·ing of publications seems negative l y corre l a ted with problem solving capability. This program "Why Not" or "Model Schoo l's", suggests tha t the focus of educati on needs to be shifted awa y from the "print " to the problem. ' . The pur po s e of educa tion is primari ly to pr~pare the student to mee t the d ema nd s of h i s world. Stud ents r ecogni ze the need f or a more relevant educationa l experience. And the community demands a more invo lved university. Both need the university to become a more active agent in problem s o lving and direct service. But in spite of all the r e c e nt encouragement from the citizens and students , the university continues its aloof r o le and a t times ignores its r e s ponsibilities. The pover ty of an area breeds a psycho l og ica l handicap fo r a ll ethnic groups. Welfare mo thers and f a the rs without j obs fr e quently transfer the ir own guilt f ee lings to the ir child ren , and schoo l s ofte n under line the children's uncer t ainty. It is her e t ha t the fa cili ties of t he univer s ity and the avai l abl e manpower of s tudents c an have a l arge i mpact . i ! The proposal s and requirements of "Why Not" (model schools ) address t hemsel ves t o t he ful l integration of the universi ty ' s r esources .. i n sol ving the urban problem. The development of incr eased student · _power and intensifi ed s tudent participation support our bel ief tha t t radi t ional wa l ls mu s t be br oken down, both withi n the univers i t y and t he surrounding communit y, in t he effort t ~ bring about a more humane urban environment . .. .· . To break down these wa lls and escape f rom the f eudal armor of the cas tle-and- the-moat, univ er si t y admini s t rat or s and facul t y must begin t o conceive of the universi t y a s a t otal socia l ins t i tuti on which i s di ff er ent f rom the aggr ega t e coll ection of departments and colleges . They mus t deve l op with the s t udents a balance bet ween t he educational programs and basi c research , . social advocacy and problem solving. It i s for them t o devel op a bal ance bet ween s cholars and int el l ec tual a ct ivist s , be t ween student-orient ed pr ofess ors and communi ty- orient ed problem s olver s . This ba l ance and coordina t ion must be concept ual as well as or ganiza t ional t o succeed. Thi s academic movement must be with t he assi s t ance of student and communit y advice . The large bra in t r us t s of uni versiti e s are becoming l i ke the f eder al government, bas tions of bureaucracy wher e many people be come l ost. WHY NOT can dev elop conta ct be tween the "l i ttl e people " , the university , and t he government. And the link between all of t hese can be t he s tudent . · �Student tutorial programs already exist across the country and provide a perfect link with the community upon which the university can build. Tutorials are b e nficial to all parties involved if these parties involved 1$:fr,q;,~*'. _ .,;m are given a role in the planning . and supervision. Many successful tutorials have been initiated by local residents. The r e sidents 6f a ghetto in Cambridge, Massachusetts, created Tutoring Plus. In the summer of 1964, a group of teenagers met with a few older neighborhbod youths who were attending college. All were trying to answer the questi"'on- of why a smal 1 number of the ~,. older youths had made it to college while few of the rest had even finished high school. Tutoring Plus now involves M.I.T. students, the Polaroid Corporation, and Christ Church in Cambridge. The successful example of Tutoring Plus points the way for the university, the city, and WMY NOT. In an increasingly open and secular ~ [ society, young people are concerne d with their own identity, the nature and quality of their society ' and their relation to men everywhere. Tutorials bring a share of awareness and individual identity to both tuto'r and tute e. Ghetto youths often feel unable to deal with their environment, m~ch less change it. This alienatmon is often translaged into a self-fulfilling hostility towards any future efforts at personal or niighborhoos advancement. This alienation can be overcome by student volunteers running their own programs in conjunction with n e ighborhood community groups and parents. Stud en t-run tutoring programs have inherent flexibility which enables them to b e revised constantly to me et individua l needs. They can ope rate with little of the stigma attach e d by adolescents to schools and agency sponsore d programs. First of all, the stude nt volunt eer is not too much older than the individuals th ey work with, thus contributing to a sense of c onrad eship and und ersta nding be tween tutb t and tutee. Secondly, the college stude nt, by his very pres e nce, is likely to provide the youth with a role model whi ch is not memely a pastiche of guidance couns e lor cliches but one which can communicate directly with the youth, overcoming a great deal of their time, energy, and thought, to the int erpe rsonal relationships that are an integra l part of any advanceme nt' activity. The stud e nt, merely by his presence at coll e ge, is likely to have acc es s to all types of informa tion his tutee may reque st. Many problems of stud e nt programs can be overcome with the active interest and participation of the univ e rsity. The natu re of a stud e nt's lif e , at first not much to do and then to o much, ccn work to the disadvantage of th e se programs. Some substitut e fo r mo ney is necessary to encourage st e ady participa tion. Course credit is the logical sugge stion . Very few schools give credit for und e rgradua t e field work, but the majority of schools do for gra dua t e s. This disc repanc y n eeds to b e cha nged. The successful chara ct er istics of stud en t vo lunt eer programs are relevant to any larger e ffort at communit y and ilinivers it y invo l vement . P roje cts must b e initiat e d on a sma ll scale with supervision ref l ect ing cons ult at i o n with university, co mmun i ty, stud ents, city and private enterpr is e . Projects sho uld also be allowed to dev e lop slowly to fin d Imme diate funding of uninvestia dequate and respo nsible lo ca l l ead er s . gated pro j ec ts may end in misspent funds , which could severely d amage the entire effort. Quality planning i s most important. Freedom of progrsm selection must b e guarant eed to each l ocale. Student committees must remain in.control of volunteer programs with local citizens. Experience has shown that properly run vol~nt eer programs attract the sincerest and high e st qua lit y w~rker~. And that the introduction of remuneration often alienates the socially motivated and attract s the organizttionai joiner or job hunt er. The quality of seriice then drops. Public do-gooders with their weekend house painting serve only to irritate the ghetto resident. '. �~~------·-- - -- - - -- - - Tutori a l pr ograms are only a fraction of wha t a univ e rsity can do in an urban c e nter. Not only do courses need to be chang ed to r e f~ect ,urban probl e ms but new priorities and policies need to be stated, Why should a city have to employ outside economists or ma~imaticians whe n the univ e rsity's are availabl e ? Why should computers and programmers be hired whe n limitless rea e arch hours are available on campus waiting direction? WHY . NOT could use· the univ e rsity faciliti e s in the summe r, its athletic fields~ museums, lec t ure rooms , its bus e s, pools and tennis cou r ts. WHY NOT could . work with th e city's and th e citiz e ns' needs through the univ e rsity's reso u r c e s. The "mode l s chool s " pr ogram would show that the governme nt and the university are willing to giv e a gre ater responsibility to the stude nt. No J.onier- would there be e{lack of communication within the univ e rsity and between the university and thos e who can effectiv e ly utilize its assistance. No longe r would s e gre ga tion- e x ist betwe en depa rtme nts, students, the community and the univ e rsity. WHY NOT seeks to coordinate and redir.ect th·e energies of education to problem sol~ing within tqe city and to problem solcing training for the stud e nt. Can we prepare our students t o fac e that cha ll e nge be tt e r if we make working .in i t part of their education, ma ybe even for cre dit? Can we go be yond the r e s e arch and pr oblem-solving with our colleague s in the community of ins ti tut ions, and relat e ourselv e s to our ghe tto neighbors .· to improve their environme ntal condition? Can we even go be yond the poorly developed programs and technologies of today and d e velop new V$Sions of ne ighborhood life to which both residential and university communities contribute? Is it possibl e that th e urban univ e rsity can become a mo re vi Lal mover in all of its missions by making th.i s att e mpt? WHY NOT. In a sub-syst e ms, trend. Will leadership? soci e ty charact e ri zed by acc e lerating cha nge in all of its th e problem sol v ing u r ban un i ve r $ ity s eems an ine vit a bl e we be forced t o it, or will we anticipa t e ev e nts and take That is the que stion. -n,ie an swe r is WH Y NOT. ,- ' �

Atl anta , Georgia 30303 Total Attendance: 300 Purpose o f Conference To explore existing service programs invol v i ng you th and governmen t i n urban, domestic, and f oreign setting and develop a metro-Atlanta model of service-learning between area colleges, government units , age nc ies a nd ~tuden t s. Two day Conference sponsored by: Urban Corps VISTA Corps Atlanta Colleges Economic Opportunity Atl~nta, Inc.

"But we know that written across it is the word Educa- Education today is r e pidly changing from the old monolithic forms of ye s teryear. Todays youth are demanding educational reforms. - Many of you young - people are in fact creating a new kind of education through your off-campus set:vice activi8ies. The service-learning concept i a not new but its youthful applica tions are having a new a ffect on both domes tic and foreign problems. Whether young pe ople are se rving in the Peace C~rps in Zambia or workigg in Cabbage Town as a VISTA Volunteer they are having a learning experie nce. They are learning that education doesn't end at the class room door. In f act those of you that are Urban Corps interns will probably be amazed at your own learning exper i ence after this brief summer . The Urban Corps is a n excellend example of educatioIBlinnovation coupled with service. Interns will see the problems of our ci t y by a ctually participating in city government as wel l &s private agencies. paaatical extension of their academic studies. They will be learning through a In short, they help the city, expand their education, and help pay college expenses - all in one. Thie Urban Corps is truly a student program. I firat heard of thi idea of relevant internships in city government when a group of student leaders from v rioue Atlanta colleges came to City Hall with the idea more than a year ago . These studente wanted a way to learn about the city and perform a service by actually work• ing in it. After many meetings and a gre t deal of encouragement by Dan Sire t of my staff and Bill Ramsay of the Southern Regional Education Bo rd , we provided a group �young activists some support to see if this program would work. Almost all of the planning, development o f jobs and placement was actually done by students • . From what I hear, the intern jobs are very challenging and exciting. Just the physical appearance of City Hall has been greatly improved by all these young faces. Naturally there will be some disappointments and I'll assure you that you'll become frustrated a nd you'll see that we do have some almost un•solvable I urge you not to become discouraged but to help us find new ways of problems. correcting the ills of our seeming l y archaic system. We need your youthf~l enthusiasm and you'd be surprised how it will change the attitude of those in our c ity who have been laboring, almost alone at times, for change and progress. We in t he city hope that this brief exposure to our problems and potentials will attract some of you young people t o return after graduation and pursue t his as a caree r. Governing our cities is this nations greatest problem. It is an exhaustive but rewarding e xpe Lience that you young people mus t now begin to take responsibility for. I hope the Urban Corps is only a. beginning . Already we're ha-ting pre• dictiona of three-fold e~cpansion of this intern program for next year . Just the f act that nearly 1,000 students applied t his year is astounding , and when one c onsiders tha t Atlanta has almost 40,000 students a nd nearly 35 colleges we can~ begin to see the poten tial . people . We reed t h i s f ocused, a ggres3ive concern of young We need move moveme nt between t he two worlds o f academia and city . In New York, a n outgrowth of their intern p rogram haa been a rapid exchange of ideas a nd personnel between city gove rr,rn.en t and universi t ies . a miable rela t ionship of unive rsity and c ity i n Atla nta . We need this We have just begun a n Urban Life Center at Georgia State which al l local colleges are being asked to participa t e in . We i n the cities mus t t ake grea te r advan tage o f our universities and v i ce versa . - 2 "' �As John Garnder has said , t he three main purposes of the univers i ty are research, teaching, and service to the community. We've seen how students are serving the community already but there are still many unexploited potentials inside our college gates. If we look at the h istory of higher education we note that the greatest impetus was with the Land-Grant University almost 100 years a go - a system built to aid our agricultural society. Today our society is urban. But by comparison, our education system has not properly responded t o our change in society. more people working on our c i ties problems. We need If t he discipline of city planning can be used as an example , we will recognize the dramatic crisis. universities combined we graduate less than 400 plam1era per year . In all our More graduates of Medieval History are pu t on the ;ob marke.t t han are urban experts. What do we i n the cities d o f or manpowe r.? We must innovate and try to compete with indus t ry for talent and we are in the d isadvantage." Hence another r eason why our c ities a r e ungoverna ble. Key urban perarnas i on posts are occupied by lawyer s, ddueeot•; undet:takers , c.lergymen~, busines smen, bankd r s and social workers. produced by un:!.versities . These professionals have been The3e people are usually consulted on a technical o r opecialized problems' but the solving of ~be se p).·oblems depends on r elated matters almost always falli ng outside the e,q,ertise of t he consults'bb. In other words, the ke y exper~a in our ur ban society - through the exercise of their expertise enter a realm o f generalization for which t hey haven't been properly prepared by undergraduate or professi.onal education. Therefore , universities ghould try to expose their prof essionals i n urban areas to s ome type o f urban education. The The simplest method is by practical experience such as the Ur ban Corps, and the eventual solution is more teaching in urbnn conce pts . We must not neglec t t he professor i n our plan for cotmnunity involvement of our universities . ····------·-. ways hbould ----- oe f ound t o i nvolve professors in a r eas o f their �academic prowness in the city. poofessors too! Perhaps we should have an Urban Corps for I am s ure that there are needed areas of research in the city that would interest &any college instructors. This would insure that teaching does indeed remain relevan t to our actual needs. In order to facilitate this dialogue, we must have more cooperation between colle '., ces. should be able to more freely move between campuses. Students and faculty Atlanaa colleges are unique and should keep their individu~l identity, but should encourage exchanges. We have great medical schools, law schools, schools of urban design and the ~reatest predominantely Negro college complex in the world. We've only looked at the city as a laboratory, let's see how the city can help the university . Many young innovators on the urban scene could se rve as gneaa lecturers or associa te professors in our colleges. A vivid example of this is Bill Allison, now Direc t or of EOA, who serves as an associate professor at Georgia Tech. This type of exchange s hould be greatly encouraged and ways should be found to foster a nd develop both professor-city exchanges and administra t orcampus exchanges We must not only research prob lems but we mus t implement them too. Often times a very good report is writtnn - only t o gather dust - or is written not with an eye for implimenta t ion. hoods. It is the sent They are tired o f being st ud ied. with reside nts in our deprived neighborThey want help. Research must be balanced by practicaHty and kept relevant . Our cities will not plan ioi that . g o away. They will eJtpand and multiply . We must We must demand hilp from our univers ities . The Urban Corps should only be a beginning . We need youthful enthusiasm of young people in VISTA, returning Peace Corps volunteers, Neighborhood Youth Corps enrollees, service groups on campus, adult educat i on tutor ing by students in the dozens of service projects . We need more exchange between our city a nd our campuses �on all levels. I hope this Service-Learning Conference explores all these possibilities and presents them to people who will acto~o develop and carry them out, Ralph McGill always said the South was the most exciting area of the country and the most exciting part of the South was to be young and taking part in its development. Those of you who are stddents today must aa:cept this challe9ge of developing the South and our city, and those of you who are educators must help them. �

  • Text: ,---1 - IN SERVICE-LEA..'lliI NG PROGRAMS: A PRELL~INARY REPORT Determining the degree to which area colleges and universities a.re involved in service-lear ning programs and ascertaining the attit udes of higher educatfon stt1.dents, faculty9 and administrators to·ward conununity involvement constitute two of the principa l concerns of the Atlanta Serv ice Learning Confer ence. To provide insight into t hese two areas of special interest, a number of college students are currently in the process of completing a survey of ten area coll eges and univer sities. include; The ten institutions Agnes Scott College ~ Atlanta University, Clark College, Emory Unive.:-sHy~ Georgia State College, Georgia Tech, Morehouse College, Morris Erown College, Oglethorpe College, and Spelman College . As part of a br oader s tudy of student manpower resources, this survey will seek ar,suers to the f ollowi ng kinds of questions: 1. To what extent does the involvement of higher education institutions va~y fr om campus to campus? What f actors account for the variations? 2. To what extent does the degree of service-lear ning acti vities vary between different schools and departments within particular i nsti tut:f.ons? Wi1a t account s f or the variat ions? 3. What areas of connnunity life mos t r eadily lend themselves to student involvement ? 4. What are t he relative r oles of students , f acul ty, and administrative personnel i n community development activ ities? 5. To what extent does exi.sting curriculum encourage stude~t involvement in the community1 Uo students require academic credit for partici?ation in community activities? 6. How important are community involvement programs to stude!lts, fact,lty 9 and administrators? vfuat do the terms "community involvement" and "serv:i.ce-learning 91 suggest to these three important clientele groups? �' ... '• :t_ 7. What areas of community concern presently receive the greatest attention from higher education? The least concern? 8. Do existing pat t erns of service-learning practices suggest that some institutions can best serve by speciaUzing in particular programs? It is expected that answers to the above questions will be of value to ASLC for the following reasons: 1. The research will identify both the forces facilitating and the forces inhibiting development of the service-learning concept. 2. Cataloguing existing programs of community activities can assist ASLC'S role in coordinating service-learning programs and directing students into programs most suitable to their individual preferences. 3. The research will mirror the present scope of servicelearning programs and i~entify areas of neglect. 4. In the long run 9 certain priorities may be set and thereby assist ASLC in gaining the essential financial resources for funding service-learning progr ams in the areas demanding the greatest concentration of connnunity efforts. �

W. Atlanta, Georgia 30303 Dear George: Attached are two statements certifying part-time, spring term employment for Mr. Bill Adams and Mr. David Whelan with the Atlanta Urban Corps. These men are t o receive $250 each as an educational stipend. (This is not taxable income since they were receiving academic credit for their Urban Corps services, therefore there are no W-2 forms attached for tax deduction purposes.) Two other students were employed under the sane agreement. They are Rich Speer and Marcus Dash. I do not have their statements at this time certifying employment. Please pardon the rush on these two students , but Bill Adams is leaving for Europe Thursday , June 26, 1969, and needs his check before he leaves. Thank you for helping us expidite this matter.
