Manpower Administration (DOL), Washington, DC. Office of Manpower Research.
This document, based on 3-year summary reports submitted by the participating schools, summarizes programs supported by the Manpower Research Institutional Grant Program under authority of Title I of the Manpower Development and Training Act of 1962, as amended. In June 1966, the first grants were awarded to seven colleges and universities. The approach of each institution to the Act's major emphasis on research and training is illustrated by publication schedules and substantive focus; 178 publications and major unpublished reports generated collectively by the seven institutions are listed. The variety of substantive focus was, in part, due to institutional responsiveness to manpower problems peculiar to their particular geographical areas. However, broad manpower issues, such as labor force behavior of special groups and manpower utilization, were also researched. Other facets of the programs included integration of the manpower studies into masters and/or Ph.D. degree programs, involvement of 110 faculty members through an interdisciplinary approach to manpower research, substantial financial support for approximately 150 students participating in the manpower programs, and conferences and symposiums. Detailed information is provided for each area of activity. (CH)
