The Role of College-Community Relationships in Urban Higher Education. Volume II, A Study of Federal City College. Final Report.
Nordlie, Peter G.; And Others
This report is the second of a 3-volume study on the role of college-community relationships in higher education. The text summarizes the results of the Federal City College Survey, which was 1 part of the research effort. The purpose of the survey was to obtain information from people intimately involved or affected by the College concerning what they considered to be its desired goals, the obstacles facing it, and other topics relevant to the role of an innovative urban university. From interviews with faculty, administration, staff, and students of Federal City College, a number of problems and possible solutions were identified. This information is presented under the headings: (1) how the objectives of the college are perceived; (2) obstacles confronting a "relevant" urban institution; (3) college-community relations; (4) decision-making processes; (5) students' motivation, views on the "core curriculum," and recommendations to the College; and (6) factors motivating the staff to come to work at FCC. The implications of the findings are translated into a number of specific tasks including program design and evaluation tasks, and problem definitions studies. The full responses to the questionnaires and a detailed discussion of the findings drawn from them are presented in the appendix. (Author/AF)
