A Study of Community Services in the Community Colleges of State University of New York.
Festine, Armond Joseph
This study assessed the extent to which the stated commitment of State University of New York to provide community service programs in adult education has been met and the relationship between the number of programs and such factors as community size, the age of the college, the number of colleges offering programs within the community, and means of financing programs. Data were obtained from college catalogs and promotional literature, interviews with college administrators, and questionnaires mailed to each college. It was found that 15 colleges had made a complete commitment to provide programs and 13 had made a limited one. The colleges reported a total of 581 such programs for the 1964-65 academic year. The greatest contributions lay in financial support of adult education, and the least were in the area of community development. Discrepancies emerged between stated commitments and actual practice, and it was concluded that the community colleges have not fully accepted community service as a major educational objective.
