Connecticut's Academic Programs in Higher Education and Their Relationships to Selected Manpower Projections.
Jacobson, Gary S.; Torok, Steven A.
In times of relatively full employment, manpower policy has been directed generally toward alleviating the difficulties of unskilled labor. Now, however, there is noticeable unemployment among professionals that has caused attention to focus on the uncertain channels between the training and employment of skilled manpower. This document is a study of these channels and fulfills 5 major objectives: (1) to ascertain the scope and significance of new academic programs planned through 1975 by institutions of higher education in Connecticut; (2) to identify higher educational output in specific disciplines; (3) to identify existing manpower projections that may be correlated to higher educational output; (4) to review institutions' earlier predictions of academic programs and the degree to which they were realized or sustained; and (5) to determine areas in which significant unfulfilled manpower needs do or will exist.
