The problem of how to prepare teachers for work in urban school systems is a critical issue in education today. In this timely volume of contributed articles, the authors describe the newly implemented faculty development programs at seven urban universities. With varying success, each of these universities improved the preparation of schoolteachers by developing programs to educate their own faculties on ways to address the problems of urban children, their schools, and their communities. Until recently, few urban universities were committed to local community development. The authors of the case studies presented here persuasively argue that urban universities should broaden their missions to include this commitment, and they provide concrete examples of how that can be done.
