This chapter discusses the university as a site for strategic pursuit of the ideals of education, justice, and democracy. It describes a democratic university–community collaboration effort—the South Side Initiative launched by Lehigh University in 2007—which has sought to shift the relationship between a wealthy private research institution and the ethnically diverse, predominantly working-class South Side neighborhoods of the postindustrial city of Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, where the university is located.

Keywords:   universities, democracy, justice, university–community collaboration, South Side Initiative, Lehigh University
