Understanding Diverse Students. New Directions for Community Colleges, No. 3.
Knoell, Dorothy M., Ed.
New Directions for Community Colleges, n3 Fall 1973
A predominant function of community colleges is the education and guidance of students from widely varying backgrounds and with diverse interests and objectives. This sourcebook examines the major student clienteles for whom comprehensive two-year colleges must plan programs and services. The articles consider transfer students; occupational students; academically and socio-economically disadvantaged students; adult students; dropouts, stopouts, and "shoved outs"; veterans; private college students; and potential student clienteles. Methods by which the community colleges can respond effectively to the educational needs of each of these groups are proposed and elaborated. A review of additional pertinent literature and a bibliography are also provided. Contributors include: Frederick C. Kintzer, S. V. Martorana, Alan J. Sturtz, John Losak, Thomas F. MacMillan, Mildred Bulpitt, William A. Robbins, Lee John Betts, Boris Blai, Jr., Marcia Boyer, Leslie Purdy, Shirley Desser, and Dorothy M. Knoell. (Author/DC)
