Although community services are community-oriented and community relations are college-oriented, both depend on community/college cooperation and one reinforces the other. Both apply to private and public and to established and developing institutions. In March 1969, two workshops were held, at San Antonio, Texas, and Moline, Illinois, to develop pertinent concepts and techniques. More than 150 attended from 66 colleges. The topics covered, in address and discussion, were: community education services and community relations, the planning of programs in response to community needs, administration and operation of community education, development of community service personnel, planning for community education services, programs that have improved community relations, community programing and community support, federal involvement in community education services, the use of facilities on the campus and in the community, the place of the educational museum, Kellogg Foundation efforts in community education services, communication media and the community college. Evaluation by the participants showed that nearly all considered the meetings of great value. Lists of the workshop staffs and the participants are appended. (HH)
