The Cooperative College Development Program. Progress Report.
Wilson, Herbert A.
The Phelps-Stokes Fund and Title III of the Higher Education Act have jointly supported the Cooperative College Development Program (CCDP) in which 70 institutions were participating by the end of 1969. One of the major purposes of the program is to train college administrators and trustees in the art of effective fund raising. More generally, CCDP has concentrated on the development concept and its implications for management and teamwork. This report presents: a brief analysis of the difficulties of institutionalizing this development concept; and a summary of program activities which included (1) training sessions for presidents, trustees and development officers, (2) field follow-up by CCDP staff, (3) a training session for new institutions to give them a "head start" in anticipation of membership in CCDP, (4) an attempt to analyze the success of CCDP efforts systematically, and (5) efforts to develop a more accurate composite profile of the entire CCDP membership. It also describes the establishment of a Development Laboratory, equipped to demonstrate how filing, mailing, and duplicating equipment can be used for development functions, and to illustrate the efficiency of a coordinated system. Information on CCDP's personnel and on grants received by some of the participating institutions is also included. (AF)
