This is the Community College.
Gleazer, Edmund J., Jr.
This document is an informal introduction to the community college, emphasizing the developments of the 1960's. To many requests for information about the two-year college, the author has responded briefly with an overview and some conclusions about the nature and potential of this rapidly expanding institution. Topics include: (1) the context of community higher education, (2) an overview of the community college movement, (3) a definition of the community colleges assignment, (4) opportunities for students who will not transfer to a four-year school, (5) responsibilities of the college to the community, (6) the "decisive factor" of teaching and administrative staff, and (7) concerns and cautions regarding future development. As the community college depends on the understanding, acceptance, and support of its citizens to realize its promise, the author has tried to generate excitement about and commitment to the two-year college among the members of the community it serves.
