Western Co-operative College (Study of an Agency); Project Study for Education 480, University of Saskatchewan, Saskatoon.
Chapman, H.E.; And Others
Based on the philosophy of individuals taking responsibility for their own destinies through mutual self help, and drawing heavily from European cooperatives, Western Co-operative College provides training for elected officials and employees of cooperatives such as marketing, consumer, finance, service, and education cooperatives, and government departments. Permanent residential facilities were opened in 1962 in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan and added to in 1965. Objectives are to develop and conduct programs for persons interested in cooperatives, carry on research and scholarship programs, provide consultative services, develop a cultural center, maintain a library, make and enter into contracts, and provide other services. Although it lacks a research program and adequate funds for staff and library, the residential facilities, involvement of clients in program planning, emphasis on self help and back-home applications are great strengths. Challenges for additional services in the future will necessitate financial support and association with other educational agencies. (eb)
