External College Survey.
Gold, Ben K.
This report presents the results of a community survey which attempted to determine the demand for another college in the Los Angeles Community College District. The function of this "community campus" or "external college" would be to serve members of the community who are not already served by the eight existing colleges. Questionnaires received from 699 community residents showed that: (1) nearly three-fourths indicated that they would be interested in enrolling in a course, with over half indicating interest in pursuing an AA degree through this college; (2) over three-fourths had enrolled in a TV class for credit; and (3) courses for which over half of the total group indicated some or much interest were American literature, anthropology, Spanish, history, philosophy, psychology, sociology, and vocabulary building. In summary: (1) there is a market for the "external college;" (2) the proposed use of cassette-mail mode of instruction should be tried at least on a pilot basis; and (3) traditional liberal arts courses are probably the appropriate ones to offer initially.
