The Community College Extension Program on USAF Foreign Installations; Its Implications for the Serviceman and for Foreign and International Education.
Hawkins, Jean L.
This paper discusses community college extension services available to Air Force personnel stationed abroad. A review of the characteristics of the enlisted serviceman indicates the similarity of his educational needs to those of typical community college students, as compared to those of four-year college students. Programs operated by four community colleges (Los Angeles Community College, Harford Community College, El Paso Community College, and Big Bend Community College) at Air Force bases around the world are briefly reviewed. Such programs need strengthening and expansion. Six recommendations are presented to promote cooperation between community colleges and American military installations overseas. (BB)
