A College for Everyman.
Tillery, Dale
In this report issues surrounding the continued growth and development of community colleges in the United States are presented and discussed. The early developmental history of community colleges is described along with the established enrollment trend-lines over time. These factors are then used to postulate a large future enrollment. The next section deals with recommended policies for community college development during 1970-80. Areas to be emphasized are: (1) improved access to higher education, (2) technical-vocational education, (3) articulation among 2- and 4-year colleges, (4) guidance as a central function, (5) remedial education, (6) community service, (7) federal support programs, (8) state master plans, and (9) governance policies. Projections of community college growth during 1970-80 including enrollments, new schools, and required faculty and staff needs are made. (AL)
