Annual Planning Conference (3rd, Chicago, December 2-4, 1967).
For the purposes of (1) developing a forward looking approach to the multiple problems of social, political, and economic origin in the urban complex as they relate to the community college, (2) planning various ways in which Chicago City College (CCC) can prepare to meet changing needs of urban education tasks in the 1968-80 era, and (3) encouraging better student, faculty, and administration performances required for a more effective education, a planning conference was convened at CCC in 1967. David Bushnell of USOE spoke on the 2-year college's responsibility to provide comprehensive education, technological and occupational education, and adult education while attempting to teach suitable amounts of general education. His comments were structured around societal trends affecting education, signs of educational improvement, innovation at CCC, and ways in which CCC can serve the community. Harold Mayer, a University of Chicago professor, discussed the conditions that make CCC a significant contributor toward improving the educational and economic life of Chicago's residents. He spoke on employment opportunities in Chicago, education for employment, planning for the future, and challenges to CCC. A list of conference recommendations const tutes 14 pages of the report.
