A Dynamic Interface; Conference Proceedings Sponsored by the Center for Community Education, American Association of Community & Junior Colleges.
In an effort to realize the full potential of a working relationship among community schools and community colleges in providing responsive community education and services, four regional meetings and a national conference were held in 1976 by the Center for Community Education. A Kansas City (Missouri) meeting defined and explored three topics: quality of life, economics/environment, and community development. Jacksonville (Florida) participants discussed community strategies, interagency cooperation, and problem areas of community life. In Norwich (Connecticut) discussion focused on defining community education, barriers to human services delivery, sustaining public support, building student confidence, and the "technification" of society. An Oregon City (Oregon) meeting concentrated on barriers to community involvement and ways to overcome the barriers. Finally, a national conference of delegates from the regional meetings focused on conclusions and wrote resolutions for action in the areas of needs assessment, delivery of services, political awareness, and funding patterns. The resolutions are included in the document. (RT)
