Journal of Anchor Institutions and Communities
The Anchor Institutions Task Force is very pleased to present to you our second Volume of the Journal of Anchor Institutions and Communities: https://www.margainc.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/05/AITF-Journal-2019.pdf
Welcome to the second Volume of the Anchor Institutions Task Force’s (AITF) Journal on Anchor Institutions
and Communities. This issue continues to capture some of the evolving trends in the role of anchor institutions in
their local communities. Our Journal has been an important way to build upon initiatives and ideas discussed
during AITF’s Annual Conferences. Authors in this Volume have been speakers at recent conferences.
This issue is organized in three sections: Partnerships for Education, Anchor Institutions Collaborating with Their
Municipalities, and Multi-Anchor Institution Economic Development Partnerships. These are all areas of great
importance for how anchor institutions are engaging in their communities.
