The junior college movement in Iowa with certain variations has paralleled that of the rest of the nation. the junior college (now known as the community college, including vocational schools and technical institutes) came into being in response to attempts to fill certain clearly evident gaps of public education responsibility in the availability of post-secondary education. The development of the community college segment of higher education in American has been traced very adequately in a paper by Duane Anderson entitled "The Role of the Community College in American Higher Education." The present paper is confined primarily to the Iowa phase of this movement.
