Responsible local educational and community leaders determined in 1961 that all legal criteria for the establishment of a community college in Walla Walla [Washington] had been met. They subsequently have been faced with many phases of preplanning activity. Among the problems requiring solution have been: the acquisition of adequate physical facilities, the determination of an operational financial plan, the establishment of accurate and efficient enrollment procedures, and the organization of an instructional and administrative staff. Much of the pre-planning has been completed. This study was designed to contribute to the thinking of the Board and staff of Walla Walla Public Schools when the time comes to appoint the initial administrative officers for the contemplated community college in Walla Walla.
