Schmeltekopf, Donald D., Ed.; Rassweiler, Anne D., Ed.
This two-part report contains the papers delivered at a national planning workshop conducted by the Community College Humanities Association (CCHA) in October 1979 to analyze the role of the humanities at the community college, as well as the report of the inaugural conference of the CCHA. Part I begins with Donald Schmeltekopf's presidential address describing the objectives of the CCHA, which is followed by a report outlining the activities and recommendations of the workshop. This section also includes: (1) Theodore Rabb's discussion of CCHA's national responsibilities; (2) Jonathan Daube's examination of the role of the humanities in individual development; (3) Arthur Cohen's review of research on humanities education conducted by the Center for the Study of Community Colleges; (4) Myron Marty's suggestions for vocational curriculum development; (5) Harold Cantor's analysis of trends in humanities curriculum and instruction; (6) Diane Eisenberg's description of humanities-oriented community forums; and (7) Brent Johnson's recommendations for strengthening the humanities through the development of financial support at county, state, and national levels. Part II includes, in addition to the minutes of the inaugural conference itself, further discussions of humanities education by James M. Banner, Jr. and Richard A. Beauchamp and a report of the November 1979 National Assembly of the American Association of Community and Junior Colleges. (JP)
