Community Services and Quality Education: Compatible or Incompatible.
Raines, Max R.
The compatibility between community service and quality education is discussed. Variables that are indicators of quality education are: cost, or the yearly tuition rate; its distance from the consumer; the quotient of intelligence among those who are rejected as applicants; student/faculty ratio; and faculty degrees. Public service or community service functions of the community college provide excellent linkage systems between community leaders and the knowledge resource systems that exist in the university and in industry, as well as in the State and Federal governments. Locally based colleges could become a rich source of community agents. This would call for the establishment of a problem-focused center or institutions at the college with a specific administrator from the cooperating community organization designated to provide continuing liaison and leadership. Public service is not only compatible with quality education but also could become a major prerequisite for quality in many of our institutions. (DB)
