An Annual Report of the Urban Internship Program-Urban Extension Service Conducted by Florida State University's Urban Research Center During the 1966-67 Fiscal Year.
Florida State Univ., Tallahassee. Inst. for Social Research.; Florida State Univ., Titusville. Urban Research Center.
Florida State University's Urban Research Center serves a rapidly growing seven county area in east central Florida; under Title I of the Higher Education Act, the Center increased its service through a uniquely designed research-education program for public administrators, the purpose being to identify and alleviate community problems. The 2,000 participants included mayors, county and city commissioners, fire chiefs, businessmen, and educators. A major objective was to stimulate thinking and action about the desirability of continuing education of political leaders. A survey was made of educational interest among public officials; information was spread through the mass media and a newsletter; and conferences on Urban Exploration, Communications, and Recreational Facilities were held. A series of locally sponsored Community Development Seminars were led by three social science interns, who also were concerned in an educational, and a social planning, project in Brevard County. The cost of the programs averaged $13.00 per participant and $13,000 for the interns. Most of the programs were considered very successful. (jf)
