Colorado State University (CSU) Sixteen State Project for Training Community Teams of Professionals for the Development of Coordinative, Adult Basic Education Programs in Rural Areas (Project COMMUNI-LINK). First Year Report: FY 1971.
Colorado State Univ., Ft. Collins. Dept. of Education.
The fundamental purpose of the project during its first year of operation was to facilitate the establishment or improvement of an inter-organizational communicative linkage system in each pilot community. Specific objectives were to develop teams of professionals, paraprofessionals, and volunteer community level workers and to train those teams to provide leadership in the process of community-wide program development. Instructional and consultative services were provided by Colorado State University project staff and State Instructional Consultants in each of nine cooperating states during the three primary components of project operations: project initiation, project workshops, and project follow-up activities. General conclusions drawn from the first year of experience revealed that the rationale, design, and operations of the project were effective, both conceptually and in their implementation, to a facilitation of community action toward the development of interorganizational cooperation in basic educational programming.
