Guidelines for the Development of Manpower Educational Services in the University.
Williams, J. Earl
The purpose of this guideline is to furnish an explanation and example of how one university faced the changing concept of manpower. Traditionally, the university has been a leader in technological revolutions in agriculture and science, and now it finds itself with the even more important challenge of change in the development of human resources. Understandably, for success to come, certain areas must be working positively before the university center can be started on a campus; nevertheless, some problems will arise which might be called typical. Armed with foreknowledge, the center staff may be able to avoid some of these problems; others can be solved only if the staff has patience, ingenuity, and enormous dedication to the long-range goal for the center. The greatest reward for such a center of human resources at a university is in the knowledge that, through its efforts, the quality of life has been improved for those at the university, in the community, and in the region in which it serves.
