New Responses to New Problems Facing the Rural Community College. Proceedings of [the] Annual Workshop, Southeastern Community College Leadership Program (16th, Tallahassee, Florida, March 12-14, 1975).
Clampitt, Joyce, Ed.
Rural colleges have problems specific to their environment, such as transportation over great distances, a low tax base, "provincialism" and conservatism, and insufficient funding. The general theme of the conference proceedings is the potential role of the rural community college in the improvement of rural life. The addresses are entitled: (1) "New Problems Confronting Rural Institutions," (2) "Strategies for Providing Community Service," (3) "Staff Development for the Rural Community College," (4) "Reflections and Perspectives" (an historical note), (5) "Innovative Approaches to Occupational Programs for the Two-Year Colleges," (6) "Utilization of Forgotten Resources for the Rural College," (7) "Some Practical and Philosophical Considerations for Utilizing Faculty at the Rural Community College," (8) "Extending Funding Bases for the Rural Colleges: State Resources, Federal Resources, Alternative Sources," (9) "Techniques for Fostering Change," (10) "Curriculum Reform in Rural Colleges." Outlines of work sessions dealing with the issues of understaffing, student entry level, the rural stigma, staff commitment to the comprehensive college, staffing patterns, community services, and competing for federal funds, present participant conclusions and recommendations for action on these problems.
