Community Services Forum. Volume I, Numbers 1-6.
Shaw, Nathan C., Ed.
Community service, now recognized as a major function of the junior college, works increasingly with other agencies to provide educational, recreational, and cultural programs beyond regularly scheduled classes. In 1968, the W.K. Kellogg Foundation funded the American Association of Junior Colleges Clearinghouse on Community Services (AACS). The Forum is its newsletter and, for a wide range of professionals, will carry information and opinion on projects and ideas submitted by junior colleges. It will also cover pertinent literature, research and field studies, graduate programs, short-term institutes on community service leadership, conferences, and workshops. AACS also plans to publish a Directory of Community Service Directors in Junior Colleges, working papers on specific subjects, and an occasional major report on the state of the art and future prospects. Topics represented in these six issues include: community service program administration as distinct from adult education; a checklist of four basic community services for private or public colleges wishing to establish or strengthen their programs; information on materials exchange between AACS and the colleges; national organizational patterns for community services; responsibility of the college to know and reach out to all the people in the community; an interchange of program directions, problems, and achievements; formation of a National Council on Community Services; California programs; personnel training.
