Reaching Out through Community Service. New Directions for Community Colleges, No. 14.
Holcomb, Hope M., Ed.
New Directions for Community Colleges, n14 Summer 1976
The concept of community services has become one of the newest and most exciting dimensions of the community college. However, the concept presents problems of definition, delineation, financing, management and intervention. The articles in this sourcebook discuss the definition and objectives of community services; ways of developing better funding for the institution through community services; needs assessments of consumers and institutional suppliers; the procedures for recruitment of special target groups, counseling and guidance, and staff development; the management of community services in multicollege districts; the role of college as deliverer, convener, planner, coordinator, and collaborator; the accountability and evaluation of colleges involved in community problem-solving; and the problems facing community-based institutions. Profiles of community service programs in California and Florida are presented. A review of additional pertinent literature and a bibliography are also provided. Contributions include: William A. Keim, John M. Nickens, Roger Yarrington, Steven R. Wise, Benjamin R. Wygal, C. Roland Terrell, Timothy Welch, Sidney W. Brossman, Corinne Walker, Johnnie Ruth Clark, Ray Johnson, Robert J. Leo, Linda Hood Talbott, Richard L. Alfred, Hope M. Holcomb, and Elizabeth Rinnander. (Author/BMS)
