Community and Junior Colleges in Transition: Fourth and Final Report on the Program With Developing Institutions.
American Association of Junior Colleges, Washington, DC. Program with Developing Institutions.
This report on the AAJC Program With Developing Institutions (PWDI) summarizes the evolution and activities of the program with special emphasis on 1971-72, the fourth and final year of operation. Evaluations of the program by the participating colleges are included, and where possible, compared to corresponding evaluations of past years. Other aspects of the PWDI discussed are: (1) the national workshops on the low-income student and career curriculum building; (2) publications; (3) services to associate colleges; (4) regional activities; (5) college comments; and (6) campus activities evaluated by the colleges. Some conclusions regarding the significance of the PWDI are that it has: (1) assisted 200 colleges in adopting successful innovations; (2) demonstrated the value of using a non-profit educational association as an assisting agency for a federal program; (3) provided a bridge between the Office of Education and the colleges; (4) promoted the organization of regional consortia; and (5) been useful to AAJC by building communications with colleges and publicizing its resources.
