An Assessment of Community Needs.
Moore, George R.
In order to assess the educational needs of residents in the Chemeketa Community College (Oregon) service area, a random sample of 1,322 residents in McMinnville, Woodburn, Stayton, and Dallas were interviewed by telephone. This sample represented 2.5 percent of the 1975 estimated population 16 years of age and older, or 10 percent of the households having telephones. Telephoning was conducted by trained volunteers. It was determined that residents would like to see a wide variety of special interest, vocational-technical classes made available rather than lower division transfer courses only. Residents would like to have college staff available to provide information about classes. Residents prefer to have classes available in the evening, feel the offerings should be increased, and feel that classes should be conducted in existing facilities. Residents prefer to have the option of completing courses at home, especially by way of correspondence. This document presents demographic information on the populations of the four communities, and tabulates responses to the seven planned survey questions. (Author/NHM)
