University Without Walls. Honolulu Model Cities.
Central Michigan Univ., Mount Pleasant.
Central Michigan University has been operating an external degree program for the Honolulu Model Cities Program since February 1972. The Institute for Personal and Career Development (IPCD) is the component that extends the goals of the program--equal access to education for personal enrichment, career alternatives, and increased upward mobility--beyond the physical campus of the university. Some of the innovations used in the Model Cities Program are (1) translating career and life experiences into academic credit; (2) providing flexible instructional, curricular, and scheduling patterns; (3) contracting for tailored programs through an individualized counseling approach; (4) providing for wider use of work-study experiences and independent study, and developing other forms of individualized study such as learning packages; (5) eliminating campus residence requirements; and (6) providing realistic transfer policies. This report is compiled in ten separate sections. The first five sections depict the individual student's position within the total program since it started. The remaining sections provide information on the course schedules, staff, faculty, advisory board members, bylaws, contract, programs, and curriculum. The final section is an article by Dr. Melvin Wachs, entitled "HUD's 'University without Walls': A little Publicized Innovation." (Author/MLF)
