AAJC became the coordinator between USOE and colleges needing help (under Title III), after lack of expertise by those needing it most had become apparent in applications for federal funds. Agreement was reached on an extensive 3-part program: expert consultants to help colleges assess their strengths, weaknesses, and potential; national and regional meetings for exchange of ideas; year-round flow of information. The funds for 85 colleges (and selected associates) were handled expeditiously. First steps in the Program with Developing Institutions were the assembling of a national advisory council, regional coordinators, project staff, college contacts, a consultant panel and their assignments, and plans for publications and regional meetings. In June 1968, a national meeting was held at Airlie to review the whole program. The first round of consulting, done in three areas (administration, finance, planning, research, community service; curriculum and faculty; and student personnel services), produced many recommendations, and evaluations by both consultants and colleges. According to area needs, regional workshops were held and a publication program established. This report gives the background of the program, an overall evaluation, conclusions, and implications for the future. Appendices present additional details on several aspects. (HH)
