The first is academically based community service ABCS , service rooted in and intrinsically connected to research, teaching, and learning. The second is university-assisted community schools UACS , which educate, engage, empower, and serve not only students, but also all other members of the community, providing an organizing framework for bringing our programs, including ABCS courses, to West Philadelphia schools. Third, we view ABCS and UACS as core to a comprehensive anchor institution strategy in which universities engage in sustained, mutually beneficial partnerships with their communities. These strategies are shared with others across the country and around the world, serving as a model for democratic university-community engagement. Approximately 65 Academically Based Community Service ABCS courses each year engage faculty and students across the university in real-world problem solving.
