Anchor Institutions Task Force Literature Review

Posted by Anchor Institutions Task Force on October 12, 2015

We are pleased to present the inaugural volume of our new Literature Review Series, which builds on the AITF’s publication of Anchor Institutions: An Interpretive Review Essay (Taylor and Luter, 2013). This series provides us with the opportunity to summarize and present recent writings on the various dynamics of anchor institutions, and their role in communities and regions. This volume includes a combination of books and articles by scholars and practitioners, along with reports, working papers, and media articles published in 2013 and 2014.

Literature published in recent months will appear in our next volume. Many of you contributed to this document, as 97 of 319 of the contributions covered in this literature review were written by AITF members. Thanks so much to you for continuing to bring additional knowledge and perspective to our field.

You can find the literature review on the homepage:
