The Future Is Partnership.
Sussman, Herbert; And Others
Connections, v3 n5 Nov 1981
Future considerations regarding new student clientele and cooperative arrangements among urban universities as they confront societal change are considered by six campus chief executives. Herbert M. Sussman mentions the San Francisco Community College District's noncredit program, which has a separate delivery system, and suggests that the future will require colleges to allow people to move in and out of the system as they mix work and retirement with education and training. James F. Gollattscheck proposes that partnerships between universities and community colleges must be built on mutual respect and a firm contract, and should help overcome stereotypes (e.g., the community college is where unprepared students go). Donald J. MacIntyre describes the arrangement between three institutions that exist on the same campus: the University of Colorado at Denver, which emphasizes graduate and professional education in several fields; the Community College of Denver, which emphasizes occupational and vocational education and transfer programs; and Metropolitan State, a four-year school that confers baccalaureate degrees. Alexander F. Schilt notes the importance of eliciting cooperation among private and public institutions, the corporate sector, and government. Dorothy Ann Kelly suggests that colleges and universities can and ought to continue to reach out to new audiences, and comments on the efforts of the College of New Rochelle in New York City. Arnold B. Grobman proposes that cooperative arrangements between an urban public university and the educational, cultural, and governmental institutions of the metropolitan region are possible because of the proximity of the cooperating participants.
