RESOURCES FOR SOUTHERN MANPOWER DEVELOPMENT.
BRINKER, PAUL; RUSSELL, WENDELL H.
INFORMATION ABOUT LABOR FORCE CHARACTERISTICS AND MANPOWER DEVELOPMENT TRAINING RESOURCES, IN 15 SOUTHERN STATES, WAS ANALYZED TO DETERMINE PROGRAMS WHICH WOULD EFFECTIVELY INCREASE MANPOWER DEVELOPMENT ACTIVITIES. SOCIAL SCIENTISTS (1) TALKED WITH MORE THAN 360 STAFF MEMBERS IN 58 SCHOOLS, (2) CONTACTED FEDERAL, STATE, LABOR, AND PRIVATE ORGANIZATIONS IN ALL STATES, AND (3) VISITED 35 INDUSTRIES REPRESENTING A VARIETY OF GEOGRAPHIC LOCATIONS AND TYPES. SOME MAJOR FINDINGS WERE--(1) FEDERAL FUNDS ALLOTED TO MANPOWER DEVELOPMENT ACTIVITIES WERE VERY LIMITED RELATIVE TO NEEDS, (2) THERE IS A SERIOUS SHORTAGE OF PROFESSIONALS WITH PERTINENT EDUCATION TO IMPLEMENT HUMAN RESOURCE DEVELOPMENT ACTIVITIES, AND (3) SIGNIFICANT RESOURCES FOR MANPOWER TRAINING AND SUPPORTING ACTIVITIES ARE AVAILABLE IN UNIVERSITIES AND INDUSTRIES. SPECIFIC RECOMMENDATIONS WERE MADE FOR (1) ESTABLISHING AN INDUSTRIAL TRAINING PROJECT, (2) ESTABLISHING AN INFORMATION SERVICES PROJECT CONSISTING OF AN INFORMATION CENTER, SERVICES TO DEMONSTRATE PROJECTS, CONFERENCES AND SYMPOSIA, AND A REGISTER OF TECHNICAL ASSISTANCE SOURCES, (3) PREPARING PROFESSIONALS BY ESTABLISHING SPECIAL FELLOWSHIP PROGRAMS AND PROVIDING ACTUAL WORK EXPERIENCES FOR STUDENT TRAINEES, (4) UTILIZING UNIVERSITIES THROUGH FACULTY PARTICIPATION, GRADUATE RESEARCH FELLOWSHIPS, AND MANPOWER SEMINARS, (5) TRAINING PRACTITIONERS, AND (6) DEVELOPING A PUBLIC INFORMATION PROJECT USING SEMINARS, MANNED TRAVELING EXHIBITS, A PUBLICATIONS PROGRAM, AND SPECIAL INFORMATION PROGRAMS IN COOPERATION WITH GROUPS SUCH AS LABOR UNIONS, CHAMBERS OF COMMERCE, AND INDUSTRIAL ASSOCIATIONS.
