Cities and universities

CEOs for Cities has a post up about how universities can work to enhance cities:
Could universities better integrate with public transportation systems, increasing ridership and revenues while providing transportation options for their students?

Can universities better use the land they have to influence compact, mixed-use urban environments and get greater value from these assets?

Can universities rethink their approach to providing food and services in a way that grows small business and provides greater diversity, choice and convenience for their students?
I think Atlanta is actually a great example of how universities have helped make the city more urban.  Georgia Tech/Technology Square, and Georgia State/Aderhold-Broad Street should be on anyone list for how universities can be great for urbanism.
