Menino's college try - redefining town-gown partnerships

Menino's college try - The Boston Globe

MAYOR THOMAS Menino is turning up the pressure on the city's leading universities in an effort to eliminate the barrier between Boston's 145 public schools and the city's major institutions of higher education. Recent changes in leadership at Northeastern University and Boston University and the current search for a new president at Harvard make this an opportune time to redefine town-gown partnerships...

The Boston Connects program at Boston College probably comes closest to what the mayor has in mind. Roughly 50 BC faculty members and graduate students from the schools of education, social work, and nursing work regularly to identify students who need social services and health services in five schools in Allston/Brighton and three schools in Mission Hill.
