Planning Community Services.
Larsen, Howard B.; Reitan, Henry M.
An initial task in starting a program of community services is to plan to develop and prepare fo offer a program designed to achieve the purposes and goals of the college. The procedures used to analyze the expectations and needs may be as varied as the final programs, but there are certain basic considerations which are common to them all. These considerations represent segments of the planning process that are inseparably intertwined. To consider any one segment in isolation from the others is to consider only a portion of the total problem; to deal with the total problem requires a comprehensive study of all dimensions and functions of an institution. The four major segments in this planning process are: (1) defining of the institutional mission; (2) providing an opportunity for systematic involvement of community action groups; (3) devising a scheme for program development; and (4) requiring sources of information both within the district and without. Each of these planning segments is dealt with in detail and modes of articulating the segment with others in a composite program of planning are suggested. (Author/AL)
