College responses to community demands by Arthur M Cohen( Book )

5 editions published in 1975 in English and held by 587 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This work, designed as a sequel to "a Constant Variable" (Cohen and Associates, 1971), is intended for the same audience--administrators, trustees, counselors, and instructors in community colleges, university professors of higher education, and graduate students preparing for work in community colleges. The book describes the external and internal pressures operating on community colleges. The external pressures are societal forces such as state-level commission and coordinating councils that mandate institutional roles, financial structures, and curriculum and instructional patterns. The internal pressures are the preexisting institutional forms and the personal predelictions of the staff and students. Attention is focused on the intersection of these pressures, the points where external forces meet internal counterpressures. The book is arranged in three parts: (1) Social Forces Intrude (State Influence Grows; Collective Bargaining Impinges on Management; Free Tuition Faces Its Doom; Affirmative Action Arises); (2) Institutions Respond (Reduction in Force and the Seniority System; Expanding the Market; Community Development: Impossible Dream?; Experimental College Venture); and (3) Faculty Persevere (Understanding the Faculty; Increasing Job Satisfaction; Relating Tenure, Evaluation, Faculty Development; The Open Door; How Much Is Enough?).
