The Role of a Community Committee in an Early Childhood Project.
Coon, George; And Others
This paper describes how the Oakland University Early Childhood Project developed a technique for community participation in a university program. Using a federal planning grant, a committee of community and professional members representing a variety of economic backgrounds and ethnic groups was formed. The interaction of the professional and community members in planning the program and in selecting the practicum site and the program participants is credited with improving the university's ability to deliver a service to the community, improving numerous aspects of the training program, and developing an alliance between one segment of the university community and the constituency the university serves.
