The Demand for Community College Teachers and the EPDA Program Under the College of Education.
Zane, Lawrence F. H.
The Education Professions developing Act of 1967 (EPDA) provides funds to assist institutions of higher learning in educating personnel to serve as teachers, administrators, or educational specialists in the junior colleges. The University of Hawaii was among 47 institutions awarded funds for junior college fellowships. These 2-year fellowships are for graduate students and for experienced tradesmen with less than a bachelor's degree. The aim of the program is to develop, through intensive study and internship, a pool of instructors in subjects taught in the comprehensive junior college. The program has three phases: (1) academic preparation leading to a master's degree; (2) a core of junior college foundation courses; and (3) an internship program that provides professional experience under the supervision of a cooperating faculty member.
