Annual Report--Community Relations.
French, Helene; Bryan, Jean
Rio Hondo College's community relations report provides a review and evaluation of activities for 1977-78, and compares them with activities in the prior two years. These activities have been aimed at keeping the community, the college staff, and students informed and supportive of college programs, classes, and activities and aware of administrative and budget decisions. In the report, the number of news stories submitted and printed over the three-year period are shown by newspaper and year, and a list of the newspapers and their circulations are given. The news release mailing list includes local television and radio stations, community colleges, high school counselors, and chambers of commerce, as well as newspapers. A list of staff members speaking in the community and the groups to which they spoke, and a list of the groups who toured the campus, with selected comments, are provided. The last section of the report focuses on a survey of the perceptions of high school seniors of the college. An analysis of the survey responses and a comparison with responses in the previous two years led to the recommendation that efforts to educate high school students in the area about the services and programs available at the college should be stepped up. The survey form and the responses are included. (DD)
