Project Reinvest: Invest in America's Future by Reinvesting in America's Community Colleges.
McCabe, Robert H.
To help raise the level of funding for the nation's community colleges, Project Reinvest was created to help colleges communicate their role in solving the nation's problems and the importance of adequate funding. Specifically, the project seeks to encourage colleges' participation in efforts to develop a genuine understanding of their institutions and the need for strong local support and to provide information and assistance for colleges developing fundraising campaigns. To assist fundraising efforts at the national level, articles on the colleges will be prepared for such periodicals as flight magazines, business-oriented magazines, and general circulation publications. In addition, efforts will be coordinated with local institutions, the American Association of Community Colleges, and the League for Innovation in the Community College to increase visibility through newspaper articles and radio and television presentations. To aid efforts at the local level, packages of support material will be prepared for use by local colleges, including guides on building local support and private fundraising and converting local campaigns to the state level. Participating institutions will be enrolled through their presidents in a project information interchange and networking system managed by the project director. Finally, the director will also conduct site visits to help institutions organize or make community presentations. (KP)
