A Center for Continuing Education in Alaska; Innovation for a Developing Area.
Bland, Laurel L.
A proposal for a continuing education center for Alaska points out that there is a need for expanded adult educational opportunities on several levels. A more extensive program of adult basic education is necessary particularly to help prepare the native segment of the population for employment. The expected growth of the petroleum industry will bring a need for training in new skills. The growing population will have expanded educational needs. Interest in the state and its development, and in Arctic research, indicates that it would be most useful to have a site which could be used as a residential continuing education and conference center. It is suggested that such a center be established, to be affiliated with the University of Alaska. (MF)
