Role of Wisconsin Institutions of Higher Education in Area Resource Planning and Development. Consortium Project. Title I. Higher Education Act 1965.
Wisconsin Univ., Madison. Univ. Extension.
In the second of a series of statewide seminars sponsored by the Wisconsin Area Planning and Development Consortium Committee, 46 persons representing 23 institutions, agencies and commissions met to discuss the role of the state's colleges and universities in community and area resource development. The specific objectives of the meeting were: "to examine the role of institutions of higher education in Wisconsin in the solution of community problems; to develop a better understanding of the programs and resources available through state agencies, institutions, commissions and private firms that can assist in community and area resource development; to formulate plans whereby the Wisconsin Area Planning and Development Consortium Project can be of greater assistance to institutions of higher education in their resource development programs." These proceedings present, in full or summary form, the major papers given by officials of Wisconsin state universities, University Extension, The University of Wisconsin, private colleges and universities, vocational, technical and adult education schools, state agencies and commissions, and officials of local government and concerned agencies. Besides discussing local public service activities, the papers describe regional planning agencies and programs. This document further develops the reports of purposes, accomplishments and resources of the projects summarized in Proceedings No. 1 of the Consortium. (JS)
