The Ultimate--To Serve II. A National Initiative on Interagency Cooperation.
Blumenthal, Kent J., Ed.
This handbook is intended to help adult education, community and junior colleges, community education, and park and recreation agencies develop effective interagency cooperative programs to provide more and better services at all levels. It includes the national joint position statement of the National Joint Continuing Steering Committee (NJCSC) and descriptions of national associations. The Perspectives section contains articles on the NJCSC, community education, and interagency cooperation. The lead article, "NJCSC: The Past and the Future," portrays the history of the national joint committee. Six other papers give candid and thoughtful insights as to the committee's accomplishments, successes and failures, and the outlook for the future. A state information survey report gives an assessment of the current status of state-level interagency cooperation. The case studies section of the handbook is divided into three parts. The first part documents case studies identified by emphasis--the discipline of the principal facilitator of the respective local or state-level project. The second part relates to state-level governmental agencies involved in some aspect of a cooperative-coordinated action program. The third part includes a potpourri of exemplary models of cooperative projects, entitled "Briefs." Appendixes include a roster of NJCSC staff and representatives and a bibliography. (YLB)
