A Community College Plan -- for Lethbridge, Alberta.
Martorana, S. V.
This seminal 1951 report presents the facts about the city of Lethbridge in Canada and the region surrounding it, which are pertinent to the main inquiry, namely, the need for and feasibility of a community college in the locality. The first major section of the report is concerned with the evidence of need for educational opportunity beyond Grade 12 in the Lethbridge area. It considers the role of the city and area as a commercial and industrial center in southern Alberta, trends in population growth, facts concerning enrollments of youth in school, and existing opportunities for higher education already present in the Province. There follows a section that describes the community college movement, potential advantages that a community college would bring to the area, and legal status of junior colleges in Alberta. The community college plan proposed for the city and the area of Lethbridge is described in detail in the third section. Physical, personal, and financial resources which can be drawn upon to maintain and support the program are discussed in the fourth section, and in the final portion, some recommendations are presented for implementing the projected community college plan with particular reference to the potential roles of the Provincial Department of Education, the University of Alberta, and local authorities in accomplishing the development.
