A Proposal for the Adult Education and Community Service Responsibility of Colby Community Junior College.
Sanders, James Carroll
This study was undertaken to assess the adult education and community service responsibility of Colby Community Junior College, Kansas. A survey was made of pertinent literature, followed by questionnaire surveys of 64 similar public junior colleges in Kansas and five nearby states and of 200 adults residing in the community. The proposed program was to provide for determination of the need for educational services, stimulation of broad interest and participation, freer access to college facilities by individuals and groups, general job placement and adult counseling services, reciprocity of resources between the college and the community, publicity and promotion, joint responsibility with other groups and agencies, and program evaluation. These were among the conclusions: (1) evaluation results and proposed program revisions should be reviewed annually by the governing board; (2) Kansas community junior colleges should seek legislation that recognizes adult education and community service as a public responsibility; (3) junior colleges should promote adult educational and community service program research.
