Higher Education Center for Urban Studies, Bridgeport, CT.
The Higher Education Opportunities/Career Ladder Program is designed to provide opportunities to pursue higher education and thus to insure upward and lateral mobility for residents of the Model Neighborhood area and for eligible staff of the City Demonstration Agency (CDA) and of related agencies and programs serving the Model Cities area. Citizen participation in the program is insured in a variety of ways. An important aspect of Model Neighborhood input will come in the form of the constant feedback encouraged from the participants themselves. Staff unique to this program will include an overall project coordinator who will direct the services of the professional supportive staff, the assigned student personnel staff of member institutions, and of the Urban Corps work/study students. The basic added dimension envisioned in this support system is the assistance provided to faculty members in understanding the problems and special needs of enrollees and the provision for discussions with faculty as necessary on matters of special need.
