COMMUNITY COLLEGES IN URBAN SETTINGS.
MAYHEW, LEWIS B.
A CONFERENCE OF ARCHITECTS, URBAN PLANNERS, COMMUNITY COLLEGE PRESIDENTS, AND EDUCATIONAL THEORISTS MET TO DISCUSS THE POSSIBILITY OF LOCATING JUNIOR COLLEGES IN CENTRAL CITIES. THE JUNIOR COLLEGE CAN MEET URBAN NEEDS FOR RETRAINING, FOR ADULT EDUCATION, FOR TRANSFER, AND FOR CREATING AN INFORMED ELECTORATE. THE COLLEGE LOCATION SHOULD ASSIST IT IN ACHIEVING ITS RESPONSIBILITIES FOR THE GREATEST NUMBER OF PEOPLE. SUBURBAN SITES ARE SUPPORTED BY A RURAL IMAGE, DESIRABILITY OF THE NEIGHBORHOODS, SPACE LIMITATIONS, AND LAND COSTS. URBAN COLLEGES MAY (1) ENCOURAGE GREATER ATTENDANCE BY DISADVANTAGED GROUPS, (2) ENCOURAGE MORE EFFECTIVE USE OF LIMITED SPACE, (3) BECOME MORE SENSITIVE TO NEEDS OF BUSINESS AND INDUSTRY, (4) INCREASE AVAILABILITY OF PART-TIME STUDENT WORK, (5) OFFER GREATER ADULT EDUCATION OPPORTUNITY, AND (6) HAVE PROXIMITY TO CULTURAL ATTRACTIONS. NEW PLANNING CONCEPTS ARE NEEDED, DEPARTING FROM TRADITION AND PROVIDING FOR GROWTH AND COMMUNITY INVOLVEMENT. BUILDING DESIGN MAY INCLUDE THE HIGH RISE PRINCIPLE AND SHARED USE OF BUILDINGS, LAND, AND OTHER FACILITIES. THE URBAN COMMUNITY COLLEGE CAN AFFECT AND BE AFFECTED BY URBAN RENEWAL PROCESSES, WITH EACH ACTIVITY CONTRIBUTING TO THE OTHER.
