Narrative History of the National Council of State Directors of Community/Junior Colleges.
Charles, Searle F.
The National Council of State Directors of Community/Junior Colleges (NCSDC/JC) has been an important influence on the development of the public community/junior college movement. Since the first meeting of the state directors in 1961, the Council has been involved in the coordination of community colleges at the state level and in stimulating the professional development of administrators and faculty. It has supported the efforts of the American Association of Community and Junior Colleges and the Association of Community College Trustees to secure federal legislation favorable to public higher education. Council members are state directors of community college operations with the responsibility for coordinating on a daily basis the activities of community colleges within their states. This historical account of the NCSDC/JC is based primarily on the official minutes of the Council, and details meetings and activities of the Council between 1957 and 1991. Whenever possible, a full account is given of issues, discussions, speeches and papers presented at every meeting. A history of the two Council publications, "The Reporter" and "The Colleague," is also included. Appendixes include the By-Laws and Articles of Incorporation of the Council; examples of meeting rosters and mailing lists; an annual list of chairpersons; examples of "The Reporter,""The Newsletter," and "The Colleague"; and a short list of the dates and places of early meetings.
