The goals and activities of Partnership 2000, a federally funded project administered by Los Angeles Mission College for the California community colleges, are described in this report. Introductory material indicates that Partnership 2000 was undertaken to link business, industry, government, labor, and the state's community colleges in cooperative economic development efforts pertaining to issues development, resource development, faculty growth, student internships, and articulation agreements. Following an outline of project objectives and anticipated outcomes, specific activities are reviewed, including: (1) an aviation articulation conference held at San Jose State University; (2) a health care issues forum held at San Diego City College; (3) a manufacturing technology issues forum held at Los Angeles Trade-Technical College; (4) a high technology demonstration project implemented at Los Angeles City College; and (5) the Responsive Energy Technology Symposium and International Exhibition convened in San Diego. Each review contains a summary of activities and pertinent issues, and a series of recommendations. Following a brief summary of future industries which Partnership 2000 plans to target, the dissemination of project materials and internal evaluation procedures are discussed. Appendixes provide the Partnership 2000 vision statement and a list of core advisory committee members. (JMC)
