Intensive Care for the High Risk Student in the Community/Junior College: Conference Proceedings (Elizabethtown, January 27-29, 1972).
Elizabethtown Community Coll., KY.
This conference was concerned with academically disadvantaged students in the community college. Twenty-three states and the District of Columbia were represented by 200 conference registrants. Designed primarily for institutions having few or no programs for academically disadvantaged students, the conference covered each segment of the special service program--reading and writing laboratories and a learning resources center--offered at the host institution. Sessions were also conducted to illustrate developmental mathematics and experimental testing and guidance programs. Three decisions were made at the conclusion of the conference: (1) there should be a follow-up conference, (2) a national center for data about programs for the disadvantaged should be established, and (3) there should be a permanent association concerned with assisting high risk students. Also included in these proceedings are a summary of responses to a questionnaire by participating registrants and discussions on: (1) the need for commitment to high risk education, (2) communication difficulties encountered by the educationally disadvantaged, (3) problems surrounding financing instructional hardware and other grantsmanship concerns, and (4) program planning requirements.
