College/Community Partnerships. An Overview of the University of Kentucky Community College System, Part Three.
Kentucky Univ., Lexington. Community Coll. System.
The Commission to Study the Future of Community Colleges in Kentucky was established in 1988 to review the accomplishments of the Kentucky Community College System (KCCS), to assess its current status, and to provide direction for the KCCS towards the year 2000. Developed as part of a collection of articles and reports on the KCCS for use by the Commission in its work, this report examines partnerships and cooperative programs and activities between the KCCS and other educational institutions, community organizations, governmental agencies, and businesses. Following introductory sections defining the nature of partnerships and reviewing partnerships involving two-year colleges in other states, the report discusses the mission of the KCCS concerning the offering of non-credit courses, types of non-credit offerings, enrollments in non-credit courses, and the awarding of continuing education units. The following sections of the report examine partnerships between the KCCS and: elementary and middle schools; secondary schools; vocational schools; hospital schools; office-campus learning sites; four-year institutions; cultural groups; civic groups; social agencies; government agencies; and professional organizations. In addition, the report reviews KCCS partnerships to improve the education of undereducated adults, and partnerships with business and industry. A list of six discussion questions for the Commission concerning college/community partnerships, the KCCS policy statement on the accounting and measurement of continuing education and community service activities, and the Council of Higher Education's Policies and Procedures for Continuing Education Units, are included.
