1979 State of the District Address.
The running of the Los Angeles Community College District incorporates two distinct kinds of functions: those of an educational nature and those that are corporate in scope. While the educational functions have been performed well, the future will demand even greater responsiveness to student needs. Issues to be faced in the future to insure that these educational functions are accomplished satisfactorily include the following: (1) each college must develop its own distinct identity; (2) growing numbers of foreign students will require that new programs and services be provided to meet their needs; (3) more emphasis must be placed on developing cooperation, rather than competition, between elements of public higher education; (4) commitment to affirmative action must remain a top priority; and (5) the 1979-80 academic year will require thoughtful preparation for re-negotiation of contracts. With regard to corporate functions, major accomplishments have been made in data processing and in regard to the 1978-79 audit. Other notable efforts of the 1978-79 academic year were the institution of grants for the purpose of developing, refurbishing, and upgrading galleries and fine arts programs, and a proposal for a tenth college in the district.
