Projections are provided in this report on the characteristics of Quebec society in the year 2000, direction that must be given to Quebec's community colleges' mission, and how college education should be organized and managed. First, a summary report, corresponding to the full-length report, is presented. Part 1, Quebec Society: Foreseeable Growth and Educational Needs, focuses on the Conseil des colleges' efforts to plan within the context of recent and projected changes in Quebec's society, reviewing population, economic, cultural, political, and scientific and technological trends. Part 2, An Up-To-Date Definition of College Education, defines a quality college education, looks at college studies as a link to lifelong learning, and explores the relationship between colleges and their environment, emphasizing the services they offer the local and regional community, and their contribution to regional development. Part 3 reviews the steps involved in fulfilling the following priorities: (1) provide a broad-based, solid general education for all students; (2) revamp and adapt pre-university education to meet current and future needs; (3) improve technical education, increase recruitment, and make programs more flexible; (4) develop continuing education as a means of making college education accessible to adults; (5) develop and implement a true strategy for educational success; and (6) intensify evaluation practices and broaden their application. Finally, part 4 reviews five measures essential to the renewal and development of college education.
