Improving the reponsiveness of community colleges to the needs of non-traditional students is the topic of 14 essays, grouped into sections focusing on older adults, the handicapped, and women. David Demko describes a program designed to integrate older adults into a community college's service population. Jared Sharon provides guidelines for instituting an emeritus college. James Bellis and Lawrence Poole describe the development and operation of a multi-disciplinary center for gerontology. The use of a consortium approach to delivering educational opportunities to senior adults is discussed by Josephine Knight. A section on community college education for the handicapped begins with Barbara Reid's outline of the steps involved in implementing a comprehensive program. Costas Boukouvalas and Melvin Gay consider the provision of services to the hearing-impaired. Grace Hodgson describes the role of paraprofessionals in working with handicapped individuals. Virginia Lockhart, Alison Caughman, Shirley Woodie and Mary Bauer, Anne Stewart, Maxwell King and Muriel Elledge-Heimer, and Patricia Walsh contribute articles to the section on programs designed for women. Issues under consideration include: reentry education, non-traditional careers, special needs of rural women, equity, innovative delivery systems, and directions for the future. An ERIC review of sources and information concludes the monograph. (DR)
