Special Opportunity Facilities Planning Project: A Report to the State of Maine Higher Education Facilities Commission.
Freeman, Stanley L., Jr.; Robinson, William E.
This two-part project was initiated to develop guidelines for the physical facilities required to meet the needs of Maine for higher education at less-than-baccalaureate levels. Part 1 evaluates the social, economic, and educational needs for general, technical, and occupational training and education. Existing institutions are currently working at near capacity even though student damand is low. Demand is increasing as Maine's economic base requires more technically trained personnel. This study assesses current facilities and examines the approaches taken by other New England states to determine how best to facilitate new programs. Off-campus locations, temporary facilities, space shared with established institutions, and educational TV and radio should all be exploited until enough data from student response can be gathered to indicate the most valuable locations for permanent construction. The second part of this report presents detailed information on the occupational opportunities becoming available, including educational and training requirements for certain jobs. The six vocational-technical institutions are listed with pertinent data, and the surveys completed by each vocational center are appended. (MJK)
