Community Impact Study. Volume II: Appendices.
Oakton Community Coll., Morton Grove, IL.
Materials are provided that relate to a community impact study that was conducted by Oakton Community College (OCC) in Fall 1979 to determine how members of six constituent groups learned about OCC; the benefits they perceived in having a community college in the area; their awareness of and satisfaction with OCC programs and services; and ways in which OCC could be improved. This compilation provides survey instruments, sample correspondence, respondent profiles, and the responses of the six survey groups to open-ended questionnaire items. The study solicited information from: (1) area residents; (2) area business representatives; (3) personnel from the 12 surrounding high schools; (4) juniors and seniors at these schools; (5) students taking non-credit, adult or continuing education courses; and (6) students taking credit courses at OCC in Fall 1979. Additionally, a short history of OCC is provided, along with an outline of the objectives of the study, and the time table used during the initiation and implementation of the survey project. (JP)
