Directions for the Future: Summary of the Conference on Community Colleges-Community Schools (University of Oregon, July 24-28, 1978).
Collins, Dale
The Directions for the Future Conference focused on the roles, responsibilities, and challenges of developing a working relationship among community colleges and community agencies in realizing the total mission of education. The conference was co-sponsored by the American Association of Community and Junior Colleges and the University of Oregon's Northwest Community Education Development Center and the Center for Educational Policy and Management. Twenty-four states and five Canadian provinces were represented. Paul Tremper, Executive Director of the National Community Education Association, gave the keynote address and spoke on the passage of the first federal community education act in 1974 and the growth of programs in the past ten years. A second session concerned the background and present status of community colleges. The third general session included a description of the establishment and expansion of community education in the Clackamas Community College District, a national perspective of community college-community school cooperation, and individual presentations by four model community colleges. In the fourth general session, representatives from nine state departments of education spoke on state policies, funding, and commitment to community education. A fifth session dealt with federal concerns in implementing community education. Administrative "charettes" were also held. (MB)
