This collection of articles examines the influences of the state and federal government, the American Association of Community and Junior Colleges (AACJC), universities, accrediting agencies, and other external forces on the community college curriculum. Articles which deal with the role of the government in curriculum development include: "An Interview with Former Congressman O'Hara," by David B. Wolf and Mary Lou Zoglin; "The Federal Imprint," by Terrel H. Bell; "The Gordon Rule: A State Legislator Fulfills His Responsibility," by Jack D. Gordon; "California's $30 Million Course Cuts," by Gerald C. Hayward; and "Curriculum as Public Policy," by Lee R. Kerschner. Additional influences are considered in "The AACJC and Curriculum Reform," by James F. Gollattscheck; "The University Perspective," by John E. Roueche; "Accreditation and Curricular Change," by Howard L. Simmons; "The Kellogg Foundation and Curriculum Reform," by James M. Richmond; and "Business and Education: Partners in Curriculum Development," by David E. Anderson. In "A Case of Incomplete Institutionalization," Marshall W. Meyer reviews several organizational theories to analyze why community colleges, more than any other segment of higher education, are subject to external influences. Finally, Anita Y. Colby reviews ERIC documents and journal articles on curricular influences. (AJL)
