Evaluation of the Title I (HEA, 1965) Program in California, 1966-1971. Developing Community Service and Continuing Education Programs in California Higher Education Institutions.
Farmer, James A., Jr.; And Others
This document presents a comprehensive evaluation of Title I of the 1965 Higher Education Act in California whose purpose centered around community problem solving and strengthening of community service programs of colleges and universities. Also, the Act provided for continuing educational programs for adults in urban environments, cooperative extension programs, and urban extension programs. The central mission of this evaluation project was to determine to what extent the selection, funding, and implementation of Title I projects in California during the past 5 years have been successful in achieving the national, state, and local objectives set for Title I. The evaluation team found that the Title I Act contains a lack of clarity concerning what kinds of activities are appropriately and legally fundable under Title I. Four major recommendations are made by the evaluation team for developing: (1) more adequate communication between Title I project personnel; (2) more longevity of service for those who have professional expertise in conceptualizing and implementing broad-aim community-oriented educational programs; (3) more effective interinstitutional and intrainstitutional consortial arrangements for Title I programming; and (4) more adequate reporting of the extensive, imputed and verifiable consequences of Title I projects.
