University strength linked to cities

From the Chronicle of Higher Education, an article about cities and universities drawing strength from one another.

“Even in today’s virtual world of online course and teleconferences, a college’s location might be more important than ever to its long-term prosperity as a residential campus. That’s because students need access to off-campus opportunities to apply their classroom learning in the real world during the academic year, through internships or research projects. Those hands-on opportunities, which increasingly differentiate colleges from one another, require a vibrant local economy with a diversity of employers and nonprofit organizations.”
