Martorana, S. V., Ed.; Hammons, James O., Ed.
This report presents papers presented at a conference designed to provide insight into the specific ways in which community college personnel can collaborate with state and local planners to improve the quality of life in their communities. The introductory addresses presented in Session I discuss educational trends; among the trends discussed is the new emphasis on community and performance-based education, which utilizes a market analysis approach through which the institution attempts to identify the needs and desires of the clientele before designing and packaging the educational experience. Session II papers deal with the goals, functions, and responsibilities of state and local planning offices, community colleges, and state community college agencies in community improvement. The paper presented in Session III discusses the global view of the state and local community which is necessary for comprehensive planning. The papers presented in Sessions IV and V are concerned with the ways in which community colleges can improve the social, cultural, economic, and environmental aspects of the community. Session VI includes discussion group reports and a conference evaluation. The conference program and a list of participants are appended. (DC)
