The National Workshop on Rural Development was sponsored by the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA), the American Association of Junior Colleges, and the American Vocational Association. The objectives were to help post-secondary schools find their role in rural development; to provide a forum for significant rural development issues; to develop a firmer liaison between USDA, the community colleges, and vocational educators; to further awaken government agencies and personnel to the potentials of education in rural development; and to identify priorities and courses of action. The following papers, which were presented at the workshop, were intended to play a key role in meeting the five objectives listed above: (1) "Why Rural Development"; (2) "Rural Development Is a Process"; (3) "Coalition for Rural America"; (4) "Population Trends, Patterns, Projections and Implementations"; (5) "Transportation and Communications for Social and Economic Development in Rural America"; (6) "Rural Housing and Public Service"; (7) "Education and Manpower Training"; (8) "Health, Recreation and Cultural Opportunities in Rural America"; and (9) "Planning for Area Development--Roles of Federal, State and Local Government."
