This chapter discusses the efforts to restructure and revitalize the university landscape within a large-scale network of cities, especially when serving within the implications of global economics. The university’s physical space, as well as its relationship with the urban community at large, has continually evolved throughout the years; but in the late twentieth century, urban planners have come to think in terms of hybridity—a movement away from the town-and-gown urban encounters of yore and into the mutual stabilization of both city and campus. Although the urban campus has indeed become a closed environment, the boundaries of this environment have continued to expand and invigorate the local economy, what with the restoration of public infrastructure as well as its student population providing further economic opportunities for the community. The university space has become a hybrid city—one that is indistinct from the larger community in which it thrives.
