The Role of College-Community Relationships in Urban Higher Education Phase II--Exploratory Planning. An Exploratory Study of an Urban University Prototype.
Myers, Ernest R.
In 1968 Federal City College (FCC) in Washington, D.C. was given funds to explore the role of college-community relationships in urban higher education. The present report relates the findings of this project's second phase, which was threefold; (1) to identify and explore various means for FCC and the community to engage in joint efforts toward urban problem solving; (2) to design and experiment with new instructional service delivery programs, methods and processes for improving college-community relations; and (3) to analyze FCC's and, where possible, the community's needs and resources for improving the reciprocal relationships. In accordance with the 3 major objectives stated above, the activities to be conducted were divided into 3 categories: (1) the establishment of reciprocal relations activities including a professional services program, a site planning committee, and non-structured learning programs; (2) the establishment of priorities such as the community resource bank, the knowledge coordinating center, and college-community seminars; and (3) the establishment of bases for evaluation.
