Summary

This was the first of a series of working papers to assist administrators develop community service programs. Relevant community service programs that combine college and community resources to solve the problems of unrealized potentials and unmet needs in the community are concerned with personal as well as community development. Three aspects of community service were defined as: permeation, sensitivity and commitment to community problems and potential throughout the college; penetration, integration of the college into the community; and education, the function by which the program is legitimized. Suggested indices of progress and commitment to community service included a movement away from: the semester-credit base for instruction, the campus as the single base for instruction; exclusive use of certified personnel, and formal admission requirements. Other indices included: the commitment to education as a life-long process; experimentation with instructional approaches; modification in administrative control; expansion of the role of the college beyond offering organized classes; and increased participation of citizens on campus. A list of community service programs offered at various colleges was provided. (MB)
