The Low-Income Student in the Community College: Problems and Programs.
Menefee, Selden, Ed.
In May 1971 the regional coordinators of colleges funded in the Program With Developing Institutions met in Washington to plan activities for the 1971-72 fiscal and school year. They asked the national office of the American Association of Junior Colleges to develop a series of workshops on problems of, and programs for low-income students in the junior college. Using a questionnaire, it was determined what the colleges themselves felt were the main problems faced in meeting the needs of low-income students. Five fall workshops were set up, involving 330 persons from close to 100 colleges. The workshops dealt with the following subjects: (1) problems faced by the community college in dealing with low-income students; (2) the world of the low-income student; (3) recruiting and testing the "new student"; (4) financial resources for the low-income student; (5) motivating the new student; and (6) developing more effective learning systems.
