Proposal Planning and Development.
Rudd, Jean, Ed.; Schmerl, Rudolf B., Ed.
This publication deals with various issues and problems confronting college administrators--specifically, development officers, presidents, planners, and executives. It is especially concerned with institutions whose resources are limited, whose experiences have been constricted by historical and political circumstances, but who are nevertheless being called upon to exert themselves in new and different tasks, both in broadening educational opportunities throughout the country and in giving such opportunities new dimensions. The document presents 7 papers, most of which were presented at a Cooperative College Development Program conference in 1970. They include topics such as: (1) problems facing American society, the necessity for higher education to adapt to the present and future, and education's role in meeting social needs; (2) proposal development in the academic setting; (3) the various sources of private financial support and how to locate and cultivate them; (4) how to consider fund-raising goals and prospective donors realistically, with special reference to black colleges; (5) how to get federal financial aid; (6) operating a development office to enlarge opportunities and improve chances for successful government applications; and (7) what to include in writing successful proposals for federal money.
