Quinsigamond Community College Community Educational Services Center.
In this report the Quinsigamond Community College (Massachusetts) effort to establish a Community Educational Service Center project, funded by Title I of the Higher Education Act of 1965, is discussed. The primary purpose was to offer special educational services to minority and low-income groups in the local area. The demonstration project was aimed at college administrators, boards, and other government officials. It was believed that increased education for minority peoples would result in greater income for them and subsequent local government betterment. A wide variety of programs and project activities affecting different aspects of community life were initiated. They were classified as operational, planning, and exploratory programs; and ancillary, demonstration, and funding project activities. Four operational programs were reported on: (1) establishment of Community Learning Innovation Centers; (2) forming the Worcester Center for Community Studies; (3) beginning a community newspaper; and (4) implementing a remedial-tutorial program. A line-item budget and PPBS flow chart along with evaluative statements from some participants are appended to the report. (AL)
