Conference on Chemical Technicians: Curriculum Development and Student Recruitment (New York City Community College, October 27-28, 1967).
This report presents major statements related to curriculum development or student recruitment in chemical technology. The USOE's suggested 2-year post-secondary curriculum in chemical technology was described by Walter Brooking. In reporting the American Chemical Society's (ACS) recommendations for the chemistry core content of a chemical technology program, Carlton Roberts noted problems of immediate concern. William Samuels, Jr., commented on the implications of the foregoing curriculums on the use of technicians in industry. Following Donald Swanson's treatment of the relationship of the scientific assistant to the professional scientist, William Forter discussed the chemistry student and the chemical technology curriculum. Suggesting materials needed for the fulfillment of the ACS guidelines was the purpose of Howard Ayer's presentation. Three topics were discussed in a round table conference: (1) the technician in college, (2) the technician in industry, and (3) the college/industry interface. William Thrane then cited the need for greater dis emination of materials in an effort to recruit more and better students in the field. A talk on the subject of a public community college's approach to the recruitment problem was delivered by Camelo Greco followed by a panel discussion of the recruiting problem from other vantage points.
