The Feasibility of Establishing Highway Safety Manpower Development and Research Centers at University-Level Institutions. Final Report, Volume I: Study Report.
Chorness, Maury H.; And Others
To examine the feasibility of establishing Highway Safety Manpower Development and Research (HSMDR) Centers at university-level institutions which would produce three types of manpower--safety specialists, safety professionals, and research manpower, previous National Highway Safety Bureau research studies and approximately 50 federally funded education, training, and research programs were reviewed. This document, the first of a 2-volume report, contains results and recommendations of the feasibility study in these chapters: (1) Skills and Disciplines Required for Highway Safety Manpower Development, (2) Alternative Strategies for Establishing HSMDR Centers, (3) Criteria for the Selection of Candidate Universities, (4) Identification of Candidate Universities, (5) Results of Discussions with University Representatives on the Establishment of Centers, (6) Guidelines for the Administration and Operation of Centers, (7) Evaluation Plan, (8) A General Plan for Program Controls, (9) Congressional Justification for the Establishment of Regional Pilot Centers, and (10) Preparation of a Request for Proposal for the Establishment of Regional Pilot Centers. Several data tables and other study materials are available in Volume II (VT 013 332) in this issue. (SB)
