This collection of research reports focuses on recent studies conducted by practitioners in the fields of public service and continuing education in Texas colleges and universities. "What It's All About," an editorial by David Wells, explains the balance colleges must maintain between serving their community and remaining fiscally stable. "Leadership for Continuing Education: A Call for Solid Footing," by Joe B. Rushing, examines the need for leaders in continuing education to move comfortably in both the world of academe and the world of work, service, and production in order to meet the needs of an increasingly technological nation. "Teleconferencing: The Window in the Ivy Covered Wall," by Darlyne Ervin and Karen Johnson, addresses the increasing use of teleconferences by community colleges to cost-effectively expand their educational systems. A questionnaire used to investigate the involvement of Texas community colleges in teleconferencing is included. "Developing a Curriculum for Continuing Education in Petroleum Technology," by William A. Dexter, describes Richland College's current and proposed petroleum technology courses. Finally, "1987 Personnel Profile/Salary Survey and Institutional Profile," by Howard W. Smith, Jr., and Kathy Jackson, reports on a comprehensive statewide survey of continuing education staff, salaries, and programming. (VVC)
