Cultural Affairs: A Vital Phase of Community Services.
Goldman, Leroy Howard
This paper looks at community services in the junior college, particularly cultural affairs. The nature of the community must be defined before an effective program can be organized. The college can then determine the area of services to be offered. Cultural programs are considered to be those offering lectures, films, exhibits, theater, and so on. Interviews were conducted with directors of community services at seven varied community colleges. All had lecture series of varying scopes. The College Association for Public Events and Services was the booking agent for the series. Colleges with comprehensive programs offered art and science exhibits. Film series were the most popular cultural programs, as even isolated colleges are able to contract for them. Theater programs, performed by college drama classes or by community members, are usually successful. Some colleges stage fine arts festivals; some operate planetariums; others sponsor community chorus and orchestra groups. A successful cultural program will improve public relations and promote community support for the college. [Not available in hard copy due to marginal legibility of original document.] (MS)
