Project REACH. Final Report.
Dayton-Miami Valley Consortium, Dayton, OH.
The purpose of this project was to plan and implement an educational delivery system capable of reaching an entire community and willing to respond to its specific educational needs. Participating institutions included the members of the consortium and cable television and newspaper resources. The general goals of the project were (1) to attract and hold adult learners in the target community; (2) to improve the quality and diversity of educational programs offered to residents of the target communities; (3) to improve the availability of postsecondary education course offerings and promote the active participation of community residents; and (4) to reduce costs of educational offerings and become financially self sufficient. Staff included course development consultants, projection staff, and marketing personnel. Although not everything projected was accomplished, some success in each of the major goals is noted. The appendix includes sections on course selection and development, handbook for prospective REACH course managers, REACH production process, marketing strategy, surveys, course inventory, cable television, and an outreach model.
