Regional Relevancy: A Right and a Responsibility--A Perspective on the Community College.
Gilley, J. Wade; Palmer, Walter W.
This is a report of a conference devoted to the establishment of short- and long-range goals to assert the rights of the college in its community and to determine corresponding responsibilities. Two basic concerns prompting the conference were: (1) the rapid change in the composition of the student body accompanied by changing needs; and (2) the need for increased attention on the individual. The document covers conference activities and results, as well as the philosophy and attitudes of staff members concerning the community education functions of the community college. Some of the institutional objectives developed for Wytheville Community College (Virginia) were; (1) increase enrollment; (2) increase service to the community; (3) prepare for college self-study through self-study within divisions; (4) reorganize occupational-technical advisory committees; (5) develop behavioral objectives for at least 75% of its courses; (6) increase circulation of library materials by 10%; (7) improve communications among faculty, students, and administrators; and (8) improve classroom teaching as evaluated by student response.
