The Role and Scope of the Community College--New Directions.
Casey, John W.
New trends and directions for the community college are identified in this paper. New directions in governance include less local control and more state and federal restrictions, coupled with greater demands for time as a consequence of increasing complexity. The stature of the community college must be further enhanced, by continuing to pursue excellence in teaching and by helping students to exceed their own expectations. In light of the current fiscal situation, it may be necessary to review and redefine institutional goals, and to consider alternative instructional techniques, media, and personnel. Additionally, open entry/exit courses should be facilitated. More significant applications of the community college's resources to community problems and opportunities should be attempted and achieved. Active and aggressive recruitment of all potential students should be pursued through advertising and other methods. Community colleges, born in the dynamism of rapid change, need to maintain their role of leadership in society. A continuing effort should be made to touch as many lives as possible in a meaningful way. (Author/JDS)
