Community College Journal for Research and Planning, v3 n1 Spr-Sum 1983
Designed as a forum for the exchange of ideas among research and planning professionals, this journal presents articles and reviews books on topics of concern to community colleges. First, E. Timothy Lightfield examines 10 socioeconomic trends and offers suggestions to enable colleges to thrive in the face of these changes in his essay, "Megaparameters for Colleges." Next, "The Paradox of the Open Door: Student Turnaway in the Community College," by Barbara Zitzewitz and Richard Alfred, presents a 1982 study of students who considered community college enrollment but did not enroll. Nancy Woods' article, "Tips for an Institutional Fact Book," provides a rationale for compiling and publishing a college fact book and offers tips on content, format, and uses. "A System for Identifying Potential Probation and Suspension Students," by R. Eugene Byrd and Dale E. Hardgrove, looks at the effects of the implementation of new probation and suspension policies at Amarillo College (Texas) on various student groups. In "AACJC (American Association of Community and Junior Colleges) Report: Community, Technical, and Junior College Enrollments," Sharon Griffith provides fall 1981 and 1982 data on credit and non-credit enrollments and faculty, professional staff, and administrator numbers. Jim Palmer provides annotated citations to ERIC documents in "An ERIC Report: Reducing Attrition Rates," and reviews are provided of "Ethnographic Research: Theory and Application for Schools and Societies," by Marion Dobbert, "Megatrends: Ten New Directions Transforming Our Lives," by John Naisbitt, and "Five from Ohio State," a review of five publications of the National Center for Research in Vocational Education.
