The Community Dimension of the Community College.
Harlacher, Ervin L.
Embodying the general theme that the next great thrust of community college development will be in the direction of community services, this volume describes and analyzes the relationship between the American community college and the local community. It discusses community service programs and the organizational patterns they reveal and explores the various types of services that can be offered. The volume concludes with a discussion of future trends for community services in two-year institutions and a projection of the anticipated growth of the service function. The study is based, in part, on visits to 37 community colleges and correspondence with an additional 28. (Author/DM)
