University Manpower Research Seminar for the Stimulation of Professional Research Interest.
Kaufman, Jacob B.; Levine, Louis
Seminars were conducted at Cornell University and Arizona State University to encourage manpower research among persons who had recently received doctorates in the social and behavioral sciences. Individuals who showed promise for making positive contributions to manpower research were selected from both large and small institutions of higher learning. Prior to the seminars, they received reading materials and a series of suggested questions for discussion. The major discussion topics were the employment of minority workers, the psychological roots of ghetto hard-core unemployment, and implementation and support for manpower research. In response to a questionnaire sent to the seminar participants, 90 percent favored the continuation of the research seminars, and 80 percent stated that the seminar had influenced them to engage in manpower research. Seminar agendas, a list of the participants, discussion questions, and a seminar evaluation form are appended. (BC)
