Human Resources Development--an Emerging Role for Black Professionals in Higher Education.
Pinnock, Theo. James
All over America today Human Resources Development (HRD) Departments and/or Agencies are emerging. HRD is an adult and continuing educational process designed to help alleviate some of the adult problems of today with the hope that the future will be more rewarding for all. Today, changes in social and technological conditions are proceeding at such a rapid pace that everyday skills as those involved in child-rearing, food preparation, transportation, health maintenance, and leisure time activities are constantly being modified. The increasing necessity for a mobile population coincident with concentrated living in cities requires adults to learn new patterns, values, and new ways of achieving personal identity repeatedly within a single life-time. Therefore, there is a new emphasis to educate adults as well as children. However, HRD Departments must be not only concerned with recruiting and training adults to function at present, but must address themselves to problems of the future, such as rural America, the universities, and the poor semi- or unskilled, semi- or illiterate poor people, and minority groups.
