“Reimagining the City-University Connection” will advance a new kind of collaboration involving mutually beneficial research and policy initiatives in greater Boston. Leading scholars and senior practitioners will explore accomplishments of and lessons from notable university/city partnerships. Symposium panels will address four areas: preventing and responding to violence; governance through new technologies; improving urban education; and the challenges of implementation. The symposium, sponsored by The Radcliffe Institute for Advanced Study in collaboration with The Rappaport Institute for Greater Boston and the City of Boston, will create opportunities to strengthen existing collaborations and to develop novel ones that cross academic disciplines and administrative boundaries.
