Providing Community Services for a Valencia Community College Downtown Center.
Fischer, Olin R., Jr.; And Others
To determine what types of services Valencia Community College's Downtown Multipurpose Center should provide for the community, a questionnaire was either mailed or administered to members of community youth groups, black community leaders, women leaders, and senior citizens. The responses were key punched, tabulated, and calculated. The results of the survey indicated that although there was a demand among all of the target groups for services through a downtown center, the services demanded were significantly different. The services listed as greatly beneficial were in the areas of continuing education--customized workshops, refresher or short courses, noncredit personal improvement courses, and cultural activities and programs. As a result of this study, the emphasis for the Downtown Center planning shifted from activities of primarily a testing, guidance, and counseling nature to plans for a broad-based community services center emphasizing continuing education.
