The Role of College-Community Relationships in Urban Higher Education. Volume III, A Community Survey of Washington, D.C. Final Report.
Astin, Helen; And Others
This report is the third of a 3-volume study on the role of college-community relationships in higher education. This report presents the findings of a community survey in Washington, D.C., the purpose of which was to obtain information about the community's perception and expectations regarding Federal City College. Seven groups were included in the sample: community leaders, parents of high school students and alumni, high school personnel, present high school seniors, high school alumni of the class of 1967 and 1968, and FCC applicants who either could not be accomodated by the College because of their high lottery number, or were accepted but did not register. The survey was intended to obtain information which the College could use in initiating projects that would serve the needs of the D.C. community, and meet the expectations of the students. The report discusses: the methods used in selecting the sample, data collection procedures, and the survey findings. Tabular presentation of the data, the role of D.C. area institutions in alleviating urban problems, and a case history of a campus organization for dealing with urban problems are included in the appendix.
