Health and Safety Education in University Extension Division Programs.
Kirchner, Joy Miller
Universities and colleges having extension programs in 1964 were surveyed. A need for health and safety education through courses, institutes, workshops and non-credit continuing education was found. Other findings included the following: (1) an increase in the supply of professionally prepared teachers of health and safety education is essential to expand the field, (2) such teachers need more contact with basic principles, practices, and research in adult education, (3) a notable lack of coordination exists between various phases of the university health and safety program such as health services, mental health services, and environmental health and safety, (4) inadequate provision exists for informal health and safety education, (5) extension students and other community personnel are seldom used in planning execution, or evaluation of health and safety education programs in extension.
