Presents a new way of looking at the urban university. It describes the planning effort for a nonconventional college in the poor urban community of Brooklyn's Bedford-Stuyvesant section. This new kind of college would educate people, provide park and recreation space, cultural facilities, and low-rise, low-cost housing. It would be community-operated, open 12 months a year, 6 days a week, days and nights, for all community dwellers who either have high school diplomas or can pass a set of special tests built around the college's curriculum. A blueprint illustrating the design of the proposed facility is included.
