Older Americans and Community Colleges: An Overview.
American Association of Community and Junior Colleges, Washington, DC.
Data from a survey of 1,137 junior colleges, community colleges, and technical institutes conducted by the American Association of Community and Junior Colleges in October 1972 and up-dated in March 1974 show that these institutions are playing a vital role in addressing the needs of older persons in the communities they serve. Following a brief overview of the results of this survey, including discussions of what kinds of services community colleges are providing for the elderly and how these services are funded, this pamphlet includes directories of: (1) two-year colleges with manpower training programs for persons who will work in the agencies and commercial enterprises that serve older persons; (2) two-year colleges with retired senior volunteer programs; (3) two-year colleges offering retirement education programs; (4) two-year colleges with cultural enrichment courses for senior citizens; and (5) two-year colleges offering free or reduced tuition for the elderly.
