Visitations to Selected Urban Community Colleges, Spring-Summer 1973.
Moore, E. Maynard
To secure a broader perspective on possible community service programs at Central YMCA Community College (Illinois), and to observe and confirm some of the national trends in post-secondary education, a series of field visits to nine private and six public urban oriented two-year colleges was made during the spring and summer of 1973. The investigation focused on community service programs at private urban oriented two-year colleges; the public colleges were studied for comparative purposes. Interviews were conducted with a variety of administrators, faculty, and students at each college. Interview questions were intended to focus on the place of community services in the institution, the institution's priorities, and how decisions are made and by whom. For additional information, resource materials were gathered at each school to gain background on institutional goals, history, finances, community relations, long-range planning, and student body. Separate descriptions for all 15 institutions are presented, each providing a brief overview of the institution: its size, history, curriculum, and physical plant. Community service programs are described in detail. The interview instrument and a community educational needs questionnaire is appended. (Author/AH)
