Fraser, David A. S.
As part of a sabbatical leave project undertaken during the 1989-90 academic year, a faculty member at Sir Sanford Fleming College in Petersborough, Ontario visited 13 two- and four-year colleges in the United States to gather information on services, courses, and programs available for older adults. This sabbatical report provides a profile of the Seniors' Outreach Project at Sir Sanford Fleming College and programs at each of the visited sites; i.e., the Center for Aging Education at Lansing Community College (Michigan); the Senior Adult Education Program at Cuyahoga Community College (Ohio); the Centenary Program of Continuing Education for Senior Adults at Centenary College (Louisiana); the Center for Studies in Aging at the University of North Texas; Extended University Programs at Central Washington University (Washington); the Northwest Geriatric Education Center at the University of Washington; the Center for Regional and Continuing Education at California State University, Chico; the Fromm Institute at the University of San Francisco (California); Emeritus Institute at Saddleback College (California); the Senior Citizens Program at Brazosport College (Texas); the PJC Seniors Club at Pensacola Junior College (Florida); the Institute of New Dimensions at Palm Beach Community College (Florida); and Mainstream, the Retirement Institute at Westchester Community College (New York). Each profile includes a brief description of the college and its history and service area, the major activities and services of the centers, and information on program funding. Appendixes provide the sabbatical proposal, a sample site visit report, and a sample of the letters sent to the schools prior to the site visits. (AYC)
