Third Annual Report and Evaluation of the Talent Corps/College for Human Services. 1969 Program.
Walton, Barbara J.
The Talent Corps/college for Human Services is a chartered two-year action oriented educational institution which trains disadvantaged men and women from the poverty areas of New York City for jobs as new professionals in community agencies. The major achievements of 1969 were: the securing of a provisional charter from the New York State Board of Regents to grant associate degrees; the establishment of a full two year curriculum and further refinement of the core curriculum; and the beginning of training in several new human services fields. Sections of the report deal with the background characteristics of the students, the academic program; on the job training; the campaign to obtain a degree granting charter, and financial and library facilities development. There is also a chapter discussing credentialism and the new professional. Appended is the report of the New York State Department Review Committee which made the assessment as to whether the institution should receive a charter. (DM)
