Clientele and Community: The Student in the Canadian Community College.
Konrad, Abram G., Ed.
The first yearbook of the Association of Canadian Community Colleges brings together essays focusing on the community college student from four different viewpoints. The social context is provided in a discussion of the historical and philosphical background of the community college. The clientele of the community college is considered in terms of population, geography, changes in life style, special community needs, and distinctions from the more traditional clientele of the university. Specific instructional innovations in career training, in overcoming skill deficiencies, and in the use of the computer in instruction are presented as well as a discussion of major changes in educational environment. An examination of the impact of education on ongoing students and their educational mobility is made. Finally, the editor co-authors a review of the major issues and implications of these studies on the student. (MJK)
