Coordination of Supportive Programs for Vocational Education Students in Metropolitan Areas. Institute IV, Final Report.
Temple Univ., Philadelphia, PA. Div. of Vocational Education.
This conference emphasized the consideration of the total structure of supportive services for students, explored the relationships and the conflicts between present structures, and considered the systems approach to the creation and implementation of a master plan for supportive services. Participants from the 26 cities and 29 alternate cities east of the Mississippi which have been singled out as targets for special attention were invited to share in the 4-day conference. The philosophical discussions led to the conclusion that there may be glaring inadequacies in the system. Also, it was concluded that the body needed to investigate new possibilities for coordination of supportive services, that they needed to communicate more clearly with other systems seeking to serve students, and that they could share the institute findings with others in their area by means of seminars, sharing reports, or setting up discussions between services at the local level.
