Community Development Services in the Community Junior College.
A survey was conducted through the Mountain-Plains Community College Leadership Program of the University of Colorado to: (1) ascertain the value of various activities that might be useful as part of a community development program; (2) determine the extent of community development services now being provided and the extent to which they should be rendered; (3) discover the priority that community development services should be assigned among the various community junior college responsibilities; and (4) determine any special attributes necessary for community development specialists. Questionnaires were sent to 155 presidents for chief executive officers in charge of community junior colleges in Arizona, Colorado, Iowa, Kansas, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, New Mexico, North Dakota, South Dakota, Utah, and Wyoming. A small nationwide sample of community junior college administrators that have responsibility for community services was also used in determining attributes needed by community development specialists. Questionnaires were also sent to 409 community/junior college trustees and 273 private citizens. Replies were received from 56 percent of the presidents or chief executive officers, 43 percent of the trustees, 57 percent of the private citizens, and 65 percent in the nationwide sample. Survey results are provided, as related to the four objectives above, in both narrative and tabular formats. The result support the concepts of community development services as a legitimate and significant function of the community/junior college. (DB)
