29 p. 

An analysis is provided of the relationship between organizational change and shifts in programming and curriculum at Georeg Brown College (GBC) in New Brunswick, Ontario. Sections I and II focus on trends affecting all Ontario colleges, including demographic changes in the student population; reduced government funding; the privatization of training; aging faculty; and internal management problems. Section III examines ways in which community outreach has been humanized at GBC, reviewing the organizational structure of the Community Outreach Department; innovative features of the college's community-based programs; and case studies of specialized programs for women, trade unionists, the multicultural community and senior citizens. Section IV focuses on the management of change within the college system through: (1) increased participation by staff and students in college governance; (2) greater union/management cooperation; (3) increased professional development activities; (4) operational reviews; (5) management renewal; and (6) an initiative to meet multicultural training needs through staff development and programming for students. Section V outlines the challenges ahead in terms of funding constraints, structural conflicts, and human resource development. Appendixes outline community-based affiliated programs by client group and by funding source. (AJL)
