Emerging Students...and the New Career Thrust in Higher Education.
Boyer, Ernest; And Others
Institutions of higher education are today faced with a challenge that is more prevalent today than it has ever been before. They must prepare their graduates for the jobs and careers that will be in need of manpower in the future rather than for those jobs that are empty at present. This requires careful planning and accurate prediction on the part of administrators. This document comprises papers presented at a conference of the ACT on the new career thrust in higher education. The papers are: "The New Learning Environment of the Emerging Society" by Ernest L. Boyer; "Emerging Students: Career Education and Career Goals" by Johnnie Ruth Clarke; "The Challenge of Career Education to the Two-Year College" by Joseph P. Cosand; "The Role of Private Career Schools" by W. A. Goddard;"Career Guidance for Every High School Student" by Norman C. Gysbers; "Emerging Students and Academic Reform" by Clark Kerr; "The Role of Military Education and Training" by D. C. Leatherman; "Where Do Students Go After High School?" by Garland G. Parker; and "Occupational Needs in the Society of the Seventies" by E. Grant Venn. (HS)
