A Survey of Selected Community Services Programs for the Disadvantaged at Inner-City Community Colleges.
Goodrich, Andrew L.
This study investigates community service programs for the disadvantaged at inner-city community colleges to construct a descriptive history of the various programs' origins, development, and essential components. Additional information was collected on (1) current program descriptions, (2) the programs' financial and physical resources, (3) their origin and development, and (4) special problems involving the hiring of minority staff members and encouraging the involvement of white staff members. The sample included programs at six inner-city community-junior colleges in five states. Data were collected through taped field interviews, observations of selected programs, questionnaires, and a content analysis of school catalogs and brochures. An analysis of the data led to the following major conclusions: (1) the institutions involved in this study have implemented specific programs to improve the quality of life for the disadvantaged; (2) the efforts of these programs to meet the educational and economic needs of the inner-city disadvantaged citizens, though currently less than comprehensive, are paving the way for more intensive involvement in the near future; and (3) the programs included in this study are responding to the need for intensified recruitment of and supportive services for disadvantaged citizens. It is recommended that both more stable sources of program funding and more concerned faculty members be continaully sought. (Author/JO)
