The purpose of this paper is to propose what is necessary for institutions of higher education to succeed in contributive activities for the local community. First, an outline of status quo of such activities is provided. Next, a discussion of how our college plans, organizes and performs such activities with “the Planning and Coordination Office” and “the Division of Cooperation with the Local Community” as the central divisions will be offered. Following this, clarification of some of the problems to be solved in regard to the activities is discussed. Finally, it is argued that organizational and continuous approaches are essential to make the activities successful.
