Community Services Programs in Non-Urban Community Colleges.
Responsibilities of nonurban community colleges can appropriately embrace such activities and programs as short courses, workshops, seminars, conferences, civic action programs, paraprofessional training, counseling, career retraining, and other community oriented programs. These colleges and the communities they serve have special characteristics--financial, socioeconomic, geographic, and otherwise--which set them apart from urban settings. Steps toward State and Federal financial aid, more effective faculty and student involvement, better coordination and cooperation in program planning, greater attention to needs among the rural poor, wider outreach through extension and other means, new course sequences, and sharing of facilities with the community, deserve consideration. Research is needed on the needs and potential of nonurban communities, the characteristics and situation of administrative personnel and faculty, and related topics. This is the first in a series of reports designed to communicate the results of research and program activities of the Kellog Community Services Leadership Program.
