Guidelines for Supermarket Management Programs in the Community College.
Haynes, William O.
Unprecedented growth and technological advances in the food industry have created a need for well-trained supermarket management personnel. The community college is able to fill this need by offering sound 1- and 2-year career-oriented programs in this rapidly expanding area. This document contains suggestions for developing these programs, including guidelines for: (1) surveying the community, (2) selecting an advisory committee, (3) setting program objectives, (4) possible curriculum patterns, (5) faculty recruitment and selection, (6) recruitment of prospective students, (7) dissemination of program information and public relations, (8) funding, and (9) program evaluation. It also includes four possible programs that would appeal to and effectively serve food industry employees desiring to improve their promotional potential, high school students planning a career, and junior college students not yet certain of an educational or vocational goal. These programs are a 2-year program leading to an associate degree, a part-time program, a summer program, and an alternate semester program. (MC)
