Oakland University's Adult Career Counseling Center (ACCC) has provided computer-assisted career guidance and career counseling services to more than 8,500 adults since it was opened in fall 1982. During its 1993-94 operating year, the ACCC provided services to 423 females and 133 males, 87.8% of whom were white, 75.6% of whom were between the ages of 20 and 49, 50.9% of whom hold bachelor's degrees, and 41.0% of whom were employed full time. The ACCC relocated from two large rooms to four private offices and a reception area and continued to conduct activities consistent with the following program goals: provide services career exploration and planning opportunities to community adults at no charge; train faculty, staff, and students in using career guidance practices for adults; and support research efforts to improve understanding of the career development sphere and ultimately promote better career guidance. The ACCC gave community members access to following computer-based career information and guidance systems: DISCOVER for Colleges and Adults, System of Interactive Guidance and Information Plus (SIGI PLUS), and Michigan Occupational Information System (MOIS).
