CIVIC LEADERSHIP DEVELOPMENT. FINAL REPORT AND EVALUATION OF GRANT 66 - 1 - 1 UNDER PUBLIC LAW 89-329, TITLE I.
FRIEDRICH, RICHARD L.
EXPERIENCE HAS SHOWN THAT MOST PROBLEMS RELATING TO CIVIC LEADERSHIP STEM FROM INADEQUATE UNDERSTANDING OF CIVIC RESPONSIBILITY AMONG LESS AFFLUENT CITIZENS AND FROM THE LACK OF MEANS TO PROJECT CIVIC PRIDE AND LEADERSHIP. IN A PROGRAM FUNDED BY A FEDERAL GRANT, BELLARMINE COLLEGE BROUGHT ITS RESOURCES TO BEAR ON THIS PROBLEM BY ESTABLISHING IN THE WEST END OF LOUISVILLE, KENTUCKY, FOUR SEQUENTIAL COURSES--CIVIC RESPONSIBILITY AND PARLIAMENTARY LAW AND PROCEDURES (FALL 1966) AND GROUP EMOTIONAL ADJUSTMENT AND SPEECH DYNAMICS (SPRING 1967). PARTICIPANTS WERE 41 SELECTED CITIZENS, BETWEEN THE AGES OF 30 AND 50, WITH A BLUE COLLAR VOCATIONAL BACKGROUND. THE COURSES WERE GIVEN IN A SCHOOL CONVENIENTLY LOCATED IN THE HEART OF THE WEST END, AN AREA OF RAPID SOCIOECONOMIC CHANGE IN GREAT NEED OF LOCAL LEADERSHIP. OF THE ORIGINAL GROUP, 31 COMPLETED THE COURSE. COURSE CONTENT, FACILITIES, INSTRUCTION, AND STUDENT RAPPORT WERE RATED AS GOOD TO EXCELLENT AND THE OVERALL PROGRAM WAS JUDGED EFFECTIVE. (THE DOCUMENT INCLUDES THE PROGRAM BUDGET, QUESTIONNAIRE RESPONSES CITING WEST END PROBLEMS, AND APPENDIXES.) (LY)
