This chapter describes the university campus as a central feature in urban development. While driven by its educational mission, campus growth reflects many of the precepts of private real estate development in its quest for additional space. At the same time, the economic importance of the university casts it into a quasi-public role as community developer. The tensions between these internal and external roles can create substantial town/gown friction as the university seeks to expand and the community requires it to recognize and mitigate the impacts of its growth. The internal logic of campus development stems from the university's core mission of teaching, research, and service; this requires attention to knowledge development, disciplinary excellence, and technological advance, as well as to the demands of faculty, student, and alumni constituencies.
