"The arrival of Place-Based Community Engagement in Higher Education: A Strategy to Transform Universities and Communities is particularly welcome because it provides universities with both the theory and practical logistics for pursuing community-based work. This book invites universities to pursue deeper and more-powerful partnerships with the communities around them, helping to create a comprehensive strategy for disadvantaged children as we have done in Harlem." - Geoffrey Canada, President, Harlem Children's Zone
