Title: Tradeoffs between the hands-on approach and giving money/charity
Author(s): Sheehan, Brian; Payne, Frankye; VanEssen, Joel
Subject(s): Charity Development Hurricane Katrina Research
Abstract: This project investigates the University of Illinois’ involvement with Hurricane Katrina recovery efforts and aims to answer the following questions: Who benefits from the University’s approach, the university or the residents of New Orleans? On the basis of five interviews, including different faculty, the results indicate that the primary focus is on research rather than direct participation with local citizens. Although there are likely many tangible benefits to the residents themselves, the university is the main beneficiary through the promotion of its research.
