By providing computer services to local not-for-profit organizations, the Cleveland Arts Information Systems project (CAIS) at Case Western Reserve University (CWRU) is a vehicle for combining social action with teaching and research. Through its work with three target groups (cultural organizations, religious organizations and neighborhood centers), CAIS utilizes the University's resources to assist not-for-profit organizations in identifying and satisfying their computer needs. Therefore, CAIS effectively unites the University's academic mission with its mission to provide service to the surrounding community.
