Cooperative Work from a University Center

by Ernest J. Ashbaugh — 1918

One of the most significant developments in the university in the last twenty years has been the growth of the idea of service—service not only to the comparatively few who were able to come to the campus, but service to the many who were not able to come.

Only recently, however, has the university as a whole made an organized effort to educate all the people in its territory and to render service in the solution of the problems of its supporters off the campus. In fact, some of our state universities are doing almost nothing in these lines at the present time.
