Developing and Managing a Comprehensive Community Services Program.
Fightmaster, Walter J.
Five objectives of any comprehensive Community Services program are to: (1) provide educational services for all age and occupational groups, utilizing the skills and knowledge of college staff and outside experts, (2) take educational, cultural, and recreational activities to the total community, (3) become a center of community life, (4) provide the community with leadership in solving educational, social, and economic problems, and (5) promote intellectual, cultural, and recreational life in the college district. Functions necessary to carrying out these objectives are to: offer college-credit extension courses, non-credit short courses, vocational training, and cultural and recreational programs; provide special services; and secure funds to be used in solving community problems. The comprehensive Community Services program must also have Community Services Board Policies that can be implemented through administrative regulations and procedures, as well as an Advisory Council and Committees. The scope and progress of the program depends upon how extensively the community is involved. (Appendixes to the paper provide: A Comprehensive Community Service Program; Community Services Program Outline; Check List for Effective Programs of Community Services; Systems Analysis Analogue Model--Application; Steps in Program Development; and A Community Services Systems Flow. One appendix, Community Services Group Mission Statements, Design Criteria, Performance Goals, was deleted due to marginal reproducibility, and another appendix, Community Services Working Paper Number 4; Effective Organization and Administration Practices, is available as ED 037 193.)
