New Directions for Community Colleges, n68 Win 1989
In an effort to identify and tap new sources of funds for community colleges, this monograph presents a series of descriptive articles on the most successful alternative funding ventures. In addition, the sourcebook provides a sense of where and how new ventures have aided two-year colleges and how other institutions might follow in this pursuit. The following articles are included: (1) "The Community College Foundation Today: History, Characteristics, and Assets," by Dan Angel and Dale Gares, and "Reasons for Success," by G. Jeremiah Ryan; (2) "Foundation Restricted Funds, A Special Application: Miami-Dade's Endowed Teaching Chair," by Horace Jerome Traylor, Stephen G. Katsinas, and Siegfried E. Herrmann; (3) "Alumni: Friends and Funds for Your Institution," by Richard J. Pokrass; (4) "Alternative Education/Alternative Revenue: Contract Training--Public and Private Sector Models," by Raymond Lestina and Beverly A. Curry, and "Media Technology Begets Revenue," by Jana B. Kooi; (5) "Economic Development, the Community College, and Technology Training," by Steve Maradian; (6) "Entrepreneurship in the Community College: Revenue Diversification," by Richard W. Brightman; (7) "A Case for Commercial Development of College Property," by Richard W. McDowell and W. Kenneth Lindner; and (8) "Performance Contracting: Profits and Perils," by Charles C. Spence and Jeffrey G. Oliver. Appendixes provide a guide to key resources and a list of companies that provide matching funds to junior or community colleges. (VVC)
