URBAN DEVELOPMENT ASSISTANT PROJECT. INTERIM REPORT.
KOCH, MOSES S.; AND OTHERS
THE NEED FOR CITY PLANNING PERSONNEL AT THE SUBPROFESSIONAL LEVEL LED TWO JUNIOR COLLEGES IN THE BALTIMORE AREA TO JOIN THIS PROJECT. WRITTEN AT THE END OF THE 2D YEAR OF THE PROGRAM, THE REPORT DESCRIBES AND APPRAISES A 2-YEAR JUNIOR COLLEGE CURRICULUM TO TRAIN URBAN RENEWAL ASSISTANTS. THE POTENTIAL VALUE OF THE URBAN COLLEGE AS A TRAINING INSTITUTION FOR PUBLIC SERVICE CAREERS WAS ATTESTED TO BY THE PROGRAM. THE ATTRITION RATE CONFORMS TO THAT OF MOST COLLEGES, AND FAILURE SEEMS MORE IN ACADEMIC SUBJECTS THAN URBAN DEVELOPMENT COURSES, WITH PART-TIME STUDENTS PERFORMING BEST. THE CURRICULUM CONSISTS OF 17 URBAN DEVELOPMENT, RELATED AND GENERAL EDUCATION COURSES. SPECIFIC COURSE REQUIREMENTS ARE OUTLINED, AND IT IS SUGGESTED THAT COURSES BE EVALUATED FOR OVERLAP. BETTER TIMING AND A BASIC TEXT IS NEEDED FOR THE SURVEY COURSE. MORE FIELDWORK AND BETTER COORDINATION BETWEEN COMMUNITY AGENCIES AND EDUCATIONAL INSTITUTIONS ENGAGED IN URBAN STUDY PROGRAMS WOULD PROVE VALUABLE. DEVELOPMENT OF THE CURRICULUM IS PRIMARILY DEPENDENT UPON JOB DESCRIPTIONS. THE DIFFICULTY IN RECRUITING STUDENTS LED TO DISCUSSION OF PROMOTION TECHNIQUES. APPENDIXES GIVE JOB AND COURSE DESCRIPTIONS. (DE)
