The Land-Grant Mission: Distributed Regional Engagement

N. Franklin dissertation.
Dramatic shifts in the economy associated with the rise of globalism call into question the traditional ways in which land-grant institutions have defined their roles in contributing to economic and social well-being. Since the assets most needed for global economic viability – a base of innovation, talented people, and ubiquitous connectivity – are core strengths of universities, it is fair to ask how these institutions can more holistically engage with economically distressed regions to build critical innovation economy competencies. Evidence suggests that although linking 21st century regional economic competitiveness to university contributions is a concept gaining momentum in policy circles, few models exist, particularly in regions not proximate to university campuses.
