This collection of articles addresses the role of community colleges in serving the specialized interests of organized community groups. After introductory comments on the topic, Seymour Eskow discusses how societal changes necessitate a reexamination of the role of the community college and an increased orientation to community organizations. Next, Lynn H. Willett presents a model utilizing a six-phase process to facilitate college/community collaboration. John Hyland's discussion of communities as centers of organized racial, ethnic, religious, social, and cultural groups is followed by Joseph A. Borgen and William B. Shade's presentation of a case study of the involvement of communities in Terre Haute, Indiana, in human resource and economic development. Next, Edward D. Goldberg discusses the relationship between federal and state interests and local community interests, and presents a four-step process which can be used by local decision makers in mobilizing institutional resources. Dan E. Moore presents results from a statewide needs assessment conducted to determine adult education priorities in Pennsylvania, and considers the value of these findings for educators working at the local level. S. V. Martorana and William E. Piland pose three basic questions that community colleges must confront if they are to tackle the mission of serving organized community groups. Finally, Jim Palmer presents a review of the literature on community and college relations. (HB)
