This report describes the activities of the Center for the Study of Community Colleges in Washington's Revitalizing the Humanities in the Community College Project. Introductory material describes the Center's role in the project with regard to designing and conducting surveys, planning and conducting faculty workshops focusing on strengthening the humanities, disseminating findings, and evaluating the project. Next, the report reviews the activities of the Center in these areas. The activities included the following: (1) two versions of a community survey were designed to determine what community agencies, organizations, and groups are involved in the humanities; (2) workshops were organized on designing, administering, and analyzing questionnaires; (3) an audience survey was developed for cultural events; (4) a student survey form was drafted and evaluated; (5) 14 workshops were conducted focusing on approaches to integrating the humanities into occupational programs, interdisciplinary courses, lay advisory committees for the humanities, and methods of organizing student and community surveys; and (6) articles, reports, and speeches disseminated information about the project and its activities. After an evaluation of the positive and negative results encountered so far, the report reviews the activities planned for 1981-82 in the areas of surveys, workshops, dissemination, and evaluation. Appendices include the survey instruments, workshop reports, and an inventory of current approaches to integrating humanities and occupational instruction. (AYC)
