College for Human Services. A Model for Innovation in Urban Higher Education.
Cohen, Audrey C.
Based on the situation that even the experimental institutions of higher and adult education are still largely closed to disadvantaged groups, this document projects the College of Human Services as a prototype of extending educational and economic opportunity to the poor by training them for paraprofessional jobs in the human services. It traces the evolution of the College for Human Services from its source in the Women's Talent Corps program. It describes the proposed College for Human Services in terms of its objectives, instructional techniques, clientele, the faculty and the curriculum. (DM)
