NYC’s Town & Gown program is described in the link below as “a systemic action research program, facilitates partnerships between academics and practitioners on research projects aimed at making changes in practices and policies. There are two components—the experiential learning program component and funded research component under the Town+Gown Academic Master Consortium Contract. All practitioners and academics are welcome to participate in Town+Gown and can begin by reviewing the Research Agenda, the program’s primary resource for academic-practitioner collaborations. Research projects completed each academic year are abstracted in Building Ideas, Town+Gown’s annual review document, which disseminates research results and provides a foundation for the symposium events.”

The Town & Gown program will be scheduling meetings with various NYC agencies this summer. These meetings are intended to:

  • Introduce the master contract and universities to the agencies
  • Discuss research capabilities with agencies
  • Begin gathering information about agencies’ future research needs
  • Establish a process with each agency for regular meetings


We’ve been asked to indicate with which agency members of our faculty or staff would be interested in meeting. The meeting dates have not been established yet and will depend on the response rate.
