Title I Grant Local Government Seminars, 1968-69. Final Report.
Eastern Kentucky Univ., Richmond.
Designed to broaden the concepts of local government and encourage discussion on pertinent local issues, 32 seminars (two sessions each) were conducted under Title I, Higher Education Act of 1965, by Eastern Kentucky University for city and county officials in 49 counties. Total attendance was 540, largely councilmen, mayors, judges and magistrates, clerks, county attorneys, police, fire chiefs, and housing officials. Seminar formats stressed social and economic development. Problems most often noted on questionnaires had been lack of funds, revenue, and industry, followed by sanitation, streets and highways, water and sewers, and law enforcement. The followup survey covered such points as attendance patterns, program evaluation, participant satisfaction, and scheduling. Observations and participant feedback suggested two major outcomes of the seminars: greater awareness by participants of the need for more seminar type training to upgrade their professional service; and increased understanding of the ramifications of, and opportunities presented by, problems that confront local officials. (Individual seminar descriptions and evaluations are included.) (ly)
