The Quiet Revolution.
Cross, K. Patricia
This article deals with the community college movement and the work of the Center relating to junior colleges. Community colleges are practicing what students in the prestige universities are demanding: the democratization of higher education which includes responsiveness to community needs, an open entrance policy, the abolition of the concept of "failure," and emphasis on the quality of teaching rather than research. Center research on community colleges has included studies of the quality and background of students, faculty attitudes, governance, and financial support. A bibliography of Center publications on the 2-year college is included. (AF)
