A Survey of the Community Service Function in Selected Junior Colleges.
Beaudoin, Adrien P.
Returns from 53 of 88 junior colleges surveyed concerning their community service programs showed the following: (1) community service functions are typically the responsibility of an executive officer who reports to the president or other college administrator; (2) categories of community service programs are instructional (adult education, non-credit programs, institutes, seminars, workshops, and other short courses), cultural (lectures, concerts, and films), informational (exhibitions, speakers, and public events), and other; (3) the nature of these programs is service to a population not directly served by university-parallel or occupational degree programs. Community services appear to be an emerging educational function in the junior college. They are flexible and permit the institution to move in any direction with informal, often short-term offerings. The establishment of community service programs broadens the educational services available to citizens of the area. This survey is intended to assist junior college administrators who are beginning or expanding their offerings in this growing area. (MC)
