Mid-Career Education for Urban Administrators: Patterns and Potential.
Smith, L.L.
Mid-career education of local city administrators is necessary to meet complex and changing urban needs, and to make intelligent use of available technicians and specialists. The National Institute for Public Affairs sponsored three studies of such educational need in Detroit, Berkeley, and Syracuse, which resulted in the philosophy that mid-career programs should provide a general and interdisciplinary approach for understanding of the metropolitan community. The Syracuse University program conducted in 1967, and repeated in 1968, was attended by 45 public administrators from five upstate metropolitan areas. The program was conducted over a four-month period, involving two one-week in-residence training periods at both ends of the session. The first phase consisted of lectures, discussions, and workshops in preparation for analysis of the metropolitan area, which occupied the following two months. The resulting papers were discussed in the last residential week. (A brief description of a proposed year-long mid-career program for government officials and key private citizens developed by Syracuse's Dean Stephen Bailey is presented, also comments on appropriate mid-career curriculum, instructional methods, participants, and financing.)
