Cooperative Program and Facilities Planning, Southern Maine Vocational Technical Institute--University of Maine at Portland-Gorham. Final Report: Higher Education Facilities Planning Grant.
Pressley, Warren H., Jr.
In response to the great need for less than baccalaureate degree programs in Maine, a grant was made to finance the development of the three programs described here. Offered are a AA degree program in Hotel, Motel, and Restaurant Management, a program of inservice education in Respiratory Therapy which should serve as a model for programs in other allied medical fields, and a program in Child Care Technology designed for those who work with the mentally retarded and emotionally disturbed in a paraprofessional role. These were designed to be cooperative efforts between the Southern Maine Vocational Technical Institute and the University of Maine at Portland-Gorham. A discussion of program development, a curriculum description, and the requirements for completion of each program are included. It is recommended that a State of Maine Community College Delivery System (without walls) and a State of Maine Associate Degree be established. By using all the available postsecondary facilities as well as the business and industrial community, a better response to the further educational needs of the people of Maine could be provided without the creation of another formal educational institution.
