Community Colleges, Health-Related Social Problems, and the Community Services Function.
Nichols, Donald Dean
The major objective of the persent research was to determine the degree of commitment to community service in the area of health related social problems on the part of public community colleges. Specifically, the study sought to determine if these institutions have a responsibility for assisting in the amelioration of health-related problems. The author examines a number of sources including "The Junior College Journal", statements from the President's Commission on Higher Education, and data from a national study on the extension of college services and expertise to the community, and concludes that there is considerable support for the direct involvement of the community college in the community. Further, the issue of community health concerns and health-related social problems receives noticeable citation in regard to the involvement of the two-year college. While there is little mention of the financial resources needed for support of such activities the continual appearance of this philosophical position implies a degree of monetary commitment.
