Environments and Paradigms: Factors Affecting the Establishment of a Canadian Association of Community Colleges and Patterns of Resolution.
Thiemann, Francis C., Ed.
This study explores the factors affecting the establishment of a national association of junior colleges in Canada, and also presents organizational models for such an association. Topics dealt with are the beginnings of the Canadian community college movement, the present state of its development in the provinces, and the establishment of the machinery for the Canadian Commission for the Community College. A national survey of administrators, faculty, and students was undertaken to determine: (1) the needs of a national association; (2) who should be served; (3) the goals and objectives; (4) the services to be provided; and (5) future problems. The three highest ranking objectives were: (1) to act as a national clearinghouse for information; (2) to develop national standards; and (3) to provide an avenue for federal interprovincial, institutional and community communication. On the basis of what the sample population identified as the nature and purpose of the association, three models for organization were developed and evaluated. It is hoped that the new association will represent all groups: students, faculty, administrators, trustees, and communities. (RN)
