[A Program to Prepare College and University Officials to Increase the Enrollment and Meet the Needs of Minority Groups and Low Income Students. General Summary and Recommendations.]
Mills Coll., Oakland, CA.; California Community Colleges, Sacramento. Office of the Chancellor.; Wright State Univ., Dayton, OH.
A training program was held for academic administrators of community colleges in order to develop the skills and awareness required to meet the needs of low-income minority-group students. Each participating institution was expected to send that person responsible for the institution's efforts to meet the needs of the specified group of students, three administrative people, and one student representative of the student group concerned. The Community college program began with 5-day training session presented by a training team that toured California Community Colleges. The program used books, tapes, pamphlets, unpublished interviews and talks, direct observation of programs and program target areas, group and small group discussions, and work sessions. Evaluations are given of a President's Conference held prior to the community college training program, four five-week sessions conducted at the Wright Institute, and the program in the Community Colleges in California. Recommendations are made for improvements in future training programs. (KM)
